This open, drop in anytime program is 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 program will rotate through play, art and sensory sessions.  Art builds fine motor skills and expression. Play is how children process literacy skills they have learned. Sensory times are multi-dimensional and involve lots of repetition and manipulations.
