Preschool Breakfast Program

Early Literacy Initiative for Caregivers and Children

As part of DC Library's early literacy initiative STAR (Sing, Talk, And Read), a six-week Preschool Breakfast program is coming to our neighborhood this week! Space is still available for those who want to register.

The Preschool Breakfast program is a six-week long workshop designed for parents and caregivers with children ages 3-5. The workshops will talk about important early literacy skills that will help children be ready to read (or already reading!) by the time they are of school age. The program will be Saturday mornings,  and we will discuss a specific early literacy skill each week. This program involves a lot of valuable information, guidance on storytelling, the sharing of songs and rhymes, and great weekly book and toy giveaways, plus food, of course!

The program is aimed at teaching adults the skills they need to encourage children's literacy. This is not a story time program. Participants need to commit to as many of the six sessions as possible, and registration is required.

The first session is Saturday June 12th, at the Ward 1 Parent Resource Center. Please call the Parent Resource Center at (202)673-2028 or Mt. Pleasant Interim Library at (202)671-3125 to register or for more information.
