Spring Special 4 Week Literacy Class

ECFE is offering a literacy class every Wed. in April (3, 10, 17, 24) from 9-10:30 for families with children 18 months to 4 years of age. This class will explore early literacy (or what children know about reading & writing before they can actually read & write). We will also have a field trip to the Virginia Public Library! Classroom experiences will include choosing a book and exploring what activities parents can do at home to increase pre-reading and language skills. Parent education topics will focus on the six pre-reading skills & ways parents can support their children’s literacy learning. To sign up for these fun classes, please call 742-3805 or email
