Early Literacy at Home
The program La Fuerza de Familias Latinas seeks to build the capacity of Spanish-speaking parents, caregivers and childcare providers to promote young children’s early learning, social emotional growth, and school readiness.
The team of La Fuerza de Familias Latinas has created a series of digital resources and standard-aligned online workshops for Head Start programs, pre-K, libraries, and other community-based organizations to use with caregivers. . The power of storytelling and digital tools for learning help caregivers recognize their vital role as their child’s first teacher and inspire actions that can positively impact their child’s brain development.
Our program reinforces the importance of bilingualism and other important themes about child development with specific calls to action (i.e. caregivers are encouraged to play, read, sing, and tell stories with their children).
