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!
It’s never too early to instill a love of learning and families play an important role. Our programs help build the confidence and skills parents need to open the door to a lifetime of learning, and they have fun with their children at the same time! All of our programs are free.

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.
