Book Buddies – Reading to your child is one of the most important things you can do to help your child be successful in school. Through this program, a book to borrow is delivered to your home each week. Child development information and ideas on learning and literacy activities to do at home are also provided. At the end of this ten-week program, each child receives a new book to keep.
Special Literacy Events – Throughout the year, Story Walks, Reading Alive with Enchanted Circle Theater, and special STEM focused activities are held in the evenings or during school vacation weeks.
Resources and Referrals – Our outreach worker is available to assist families with transitions, or to connect families to resources in the community such as early education and care, health care, housing, mental health support, fuel assistance and help with meeting basic needs.
Ages and Stages Questionnaire– The Ages and Stages Questionnaire is a screening tool to support parents’ understanding of their child’s growth and development. It is available to all families and takes about 15 minutes to complete. Activities to support development will also be provided.
