Abstract

Early learning experiences serve as the building blocks for young children’s scholastic success. Providing parents, grandparents, and caregivers with the necessary tools to establish this foundation is critical. This article describes two literacy workshops which were held as part of a local Early Learning College initiative. The goal of the program is to ensure that young children in the community are prepared for school and for early literacy learning experiences. The workshops aim to provide parents with strategies to create high-quality learning environments for their children. In turn, this will enhance their ability to effectively partner with teachers when their child enters a formal school setting.
