Pilot Program a Success

The Centre’s Rhymes that Bind program participated in an exciting new partnership with West Edmonton Parent Link Centre and Touchmark at Wedgewood this past spring session.

We brought our oral literacy program for families with children aged 0 – 3 years into a seniors complex – and brought the seniors into the program too! This intergenerational program was a huge success with children, parents and seniors interacting, enjoying the rhymes and songs together and visiting after the program ended.

One of the parents commented on how she “was left feeling so full of life and so thoroughly enjoyed herself, as she was sure her daughter had as well”. This just skims the surface of how important and fulfilling it is for all generations to be involved in family literacy.
