Surprise, AZ (August 1, 2017) Surprise has partnered with Southwest Human Development to host a free eight week Raising a Reader program that utilizes proven skills to educate parents about the importance of early literacy and provides tools to help children learn to read.
Using an evidence-based model that focuses on developmental milestones and brain development, literacy specialists will model how to engage children with the use of books. Families will also learn the significance of singing, dancing and playing as a way to build their child’s vocabulary and prepare them for school.
All members of the family are invited to participate! Plus, participating families will take home a bag filled with award-winning children’s books at the end of each week.
Courses will be taught from 11:30 a.m. -1:00 p.m. on consecutive Fridays beginning August 11 at the Surprise Resource Center, 12425 W. Bell Rd, Suite 124.
