Literacy and learning is a lifetime process. But, it is very important to have impact on children in the early years. "It is never too late and never too early..."

Family literacy programs provide parents with ideas, tools and strategies that build on the strengths of the family, helping them to help their children through the different stages. Family literacy programs also build literacy and essential skills in all members of the family.
