Literacy
@ Home

Family literacy refers to how families use reading,
writing, and communicating to work, learn and play together – both
at home and in their community. It is about families taking time
to develop relationships.

Everyday activities that parents share with their
children are not only learning opportunities for the child, but
the parents as well. When families take time to read, explore a
city or countryside, visit a museum or park, bake or cook, share
stories or celebrate traditions together, they are practicing family
literacy.

Our
definition of parent  includes caregivers and guardians.
