Fay School is re-running a special literacy event for parents of young ones. It’s pitched as a workshop to help you add to “Your Parenting Toolbox”. 

The evening will focus on “Fostering Language and Literacy in the Early Years”. The event is free, but registration is required.

Your Parenting Toolbox: Fostering Language and Literacy in the Early Years

Learn from the experts about how to help your child get ready for reading and develop essential literacy skills. In this workshop presented by Speech and Language Specialist Jill Cordon, M.S.L.P. and Reading Specialist Leslie Overbye, M.Ed., you will learn about typical speech and language development and how these skills form the foundation for reading and writing, the building blocks of academic success. You’ll also learn specific strategies for fostering language and literacy skills at home, and you’ll walk away with a “toolbox” of progress checklists, teaching tools, activity ideas, and literacy games to use with your child. This workshop is recommended for parents of children ages 3-6.

The event is scheduled for Tuesday, February 25th at 7:00 pm. It will take place in the Dining Commons at Fay School’s Primary School. That’s at 23 Middle Road, where parking will be available.
