Family Literacy provides a high quality developmentally appropriate early childhood program for birth to five, while parents work towards their G.E.D., ESL and job/parenting skills. The meeting will include agency sharing and announcements regarding upcoming events for families and children.
Craven Early Learning Network collaborative meetings are designed for organizations, groups and individuals who are interested in learning about local resources that can assist families with children, birth to five and in expanding their knowledge about early childhood development and issues that impact “early learners”.
