Save the Dates!

Make sure to save the dates for these two upcoming events!  A Community Conversation:  Successful Strategies to Reach English Learners and their Families with Sylvia Acevedo on April 19th and our School Readiness Symposium:  Emotional Intelligence:  From Theory to Practice with Dr. Marc Brackett on May 1th. 


Help your Child Learn to Communicate with our March ParentTip!

From the very first days of his life, your child is learning to communicate. Language and literacy are how your child learns to express his needs and understand others by talking, listening, and reading and writing. These are important for his getting ready to start school. Everything you do with your child, from infancy through preschool, has an effect on her language skills and her ability to learn to read.
