CHILD CARE AND EARLY EDUCATION-FAMILY LITERACY
Family Literacy Program - Mrs. Emily Saddler, Coordinator
The Family Literacy Program is open to anyone aged 17 and older who wishes to attend Newberry Adult Education classes and who has a child (ages birth-8 years old). Onsite child care and early education is available for children ages 3 and 4. Childcare is available for other ages for eligible students.
The Family Literacy Program is comprised of four components: Adult Education, Early Childhood Education, Parenting, and Parent & Child Together Time.
Educational childcare is available for parents who are participating in Newberry Adult Education.
The educational child care is free; however, parents must participate in Parenting classes, Parent & Child Together Time and Home Visits.
Parenting classes are available to help educate and support mothers and fathers in their parenting roles.
Parent & Child Together Time is offered weekly with instructional activities encouraging the parent to become the child’s first teacher.
