Family literacy offers a more innovative and proactive approach to literacy development. We open new windows of opportunity so that all Alberta families achieve what they imagine—improved education, jobs, and health.
In 2016 over 10,250 individuals were served by our programs, services, and training!
Drop in with your young children for outdoor fun with the Centre’s Edmonton Classroom on Wheels (C.O.W.) bus program.
Tuesdays in July:
July 4, 11, 18, and 25
10:00 - 11:30 a.m.

The summer program will consist of outdoor experiences set up off the bus for children and parents to explore. There will be songs, stories, and fun literacy activities. The lending library will be available on the bus and there will be a book giveaway for all children!
Early interactions with your children, like sharing books, talking, singing, or playing, help lay the foundation for early language and literacy – essential skills for success.
Parents will find specially tailored and curated activities ranging from reading, recipes, rhymes and games specifically designed to build strong reading, writing and literacy skills in their child, and have FUN doing it!

It’s never too early!
Children who begin life in a learning environment are more likely to succeed in school and in life and parents are their first teachers. Our programs provide parents with the tools they need to support their children’s early language and literacy development.
It’s never too late!
We also support adult learners on their literacy journey, building on strengths and meeting the individual needs of the learners.
