Let’s Talk Early Literacy at Home!
Let’s get together and talk about how to encourage early literacy at home. We will have fun with a variety of children’s books, talk about activities both you and your children will enjoy. We will also discuss interactive apps and discuss screen-time. So much to do, and so much to learn-you won’t want to miss it!
