Preschool Prep 101 - English

A 10-week program that guides and prepares caretakers to send their child to Preschool. Topics include: what qualities should you look for in a preschool program, expectations for parents and caregivers, different types of preschools, and the importance of play. 

Our librarians and education specialists will guide caretakers along the way. Classes are a great way to meet other parents, ask questions and learn about resources and early childhood development.

1,000 Books

adults-reading-with-kids-and-text-says-1000-books-before-kindergarten The concept is simple and the rewards are priceless.

Read a book (any book, and repeats are fine) to your newborn, infant or toddler. That seems like way too many, right? Not at all. You got this.

It doesn't matter if your child is 3 years old or just 3 months -  there's no better time to start than now! Reading one book per day means that after a year, you will have read 365 books. If you keep going, after two years you will have read 730 books together, and after three years the total will 1,095 books!
