According to ABC Life Literacy, just “15 minutes a day can improve a child’s literacy skills dramatically.” The Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Katzie Community Literacy Committee is partnering with our local libraries to explore activities that parents can do with their children to improve a child’s literacy skills.
Many of these activities can be done while driving to and from activities, some don’t look or feel like literacy activities at all, and some are down right fun. It’s just a matter of figuring out what works for your family and we can help with that…
Join us to explore Family Literacy at either or both of our two exciting, fun-filled FREE family events:
