Pre-School Literacy Explorer Kits


Pre-school literacy explorer kits are available.  These kits are designed to help parents introduce simple ideas around reading, writing, and math into their day-to-day activities.

The kits are one outcome of an ongoing collaborative Family Literacy Work Group that identified in 2012 that many parents don’t know how to “teach” their pre-school children basic literacy skills.  The group put their heads together and determined that they wanted two types of tools or kits:

  • one kit for family service providers that made weaving literacy activities into daily programming easy and that showcased how parents could adapt activities at home; and,
  • a second kit for parents that help them learn about simple literacy activities that they could do with their children at home.

These comprehensive kits include:

  • Instructions on how introduce and do activities
  • Resources and tools to do activity
  • Consumables needed

Kits can be borrowed from Childcare Resource and Referral (CCRR) for free (with a membership).*

To borrow a kit call, the CCRR 604.467.2273
