02-29-12: Family Literacy Program Still Going Strong
Looking to the future
The Family Literacy Program has recently partnered with Elmwood Gardens Neighborhood Center, located at 83 Trahan Street in Manchester, to provide another day of ESL classes. This will allow CHS patients who live at or near Elmwood Gardens access to ESL classes close to home. The ESL classes will begin on Monday, March 5th and will run from 9:30-11:30am.
The Family Literacy Program will also be expanding to include a separate day just for parenting classes and education here at Child Health Services! This will focus on bringing parents and children together to do literacy activities while also offering parenting tips on how to read to one֒s child and how to interact with the American school system. These classes will be offered on Fridays beginning in March.
