Cancelled: New STAR Preschool Breakfast Series
Published on Monday, July 19, 2010 - 8:13pm
We have started another session of our STAR Preschool Breakfast program! The program is for parents/caregivers of children 3-5 years old with an accompanying child. Each session highlights one of the six literacy skills that enable children to become confident readers. The Preschool Breakfast Program is part of DCPL's STAR (Sing, Talk And Read) initiative, the goal of which is to ensure that every child in DC starts school well prepared to learn to read. STAR is not a learning-to-read program, it is a program that teaches adults how to help prepare children to become confident readers.
Each session is approximately an hour long, includes food and a free book, and lots of fun activities as well as discussions about how children learn and how to include activities that encourage the development of literacy skills in everyday life.
The current Preschool Breakfast Program is being held at the Ward 1 Parent and Family Resource Center at Harriet Tubman Elementary School, 3131 13th St. N.W. The entrance is through the parking lot on Kenyon Street N.W. The program runs every Saturday at 10:30 a.m. starting this week, and the last session is August 21.
