This program is for English Language Learners and their young children. It is an opportunity for families to enjoy Early Literacy activities as well as to practice speaking and listening to English.
The group starts with the parents doing a cooking activity while the children play in in the StrongStart room. This is followed by sharing a hot lunch and conversation as a group.
After lunch, there are English classes (beginner and intermediate) with trained volunteer tutors from the Adult Learning Centre, while the children do Early Learning activities with qualified Early Childhood Educators.
The group wraps up with Mother Goose rhyme time and interactive literacy activities.
