Early Literacy (Birth through Pre-K)

Early educational experiences are critical to building literacy skills and educational success. Parents and families are an integral part of these early learning experiences. The Center for Literacy Education and Employment is dedicated to parent and community education and resources that help to build strong minds, develop positive social and behavioral skills, and create healthy bodies for our future.
