Preparing Children for School (ELS)

Family ACCESS helps to prepare children for school through our Early Literacy Services (ELS) programming. The ELS program provides two national evidence-based programs for families with children ages 18 months-5 years. Our literacy specialists work in the comfort of a family’s home through home visits or in parent/child literacy groups at multiple sites. The Parent-Child Home Program is a ‘learning through play’ home visiting program. Raising a Reader offers a lending library approach to helping families learn strategies of interactive reading.
