An interactive engagement program for children and caregivers that uses play and exploration to develop pre-literacy skills.  Caregivers are expected to actively engage with children using the designed early literacy stations and prompts. This one hour program will rotate through sensory experiences, art and play. Sensory times are multi-dimensional and involve a lot of repetition and manipulations.  Art builds fine motor skills and expression. Play is how children process literacy skills they have learned.
