Workshop for Fostering Language & Literacy in the early years – February 26 (Updated)

[Editor’s Note: The event has been rescheduled from February 12 to February 26 due to the weather.]

Fay School is holding another special event for parents. Instead of a talk, this event with multiple experts is labeled 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.

This event is free to attend, but registration is required. Please register at

Parking will be available at Fay’s Primary School at 23 Middle Road.

Updated (2/12/19 8:31 am) The Fay calendar lists the event as rescheduled to February 26 at 7:00 pm. (It was originally listed as Tuesday, February 12 from 7:00 – 8:30.) It appears to have been moved from the Library to the Dining Commons. That’s still at Fay School’s Primary School, 23 Middle Road.

The registration link led to a broken page – so I removed the signup link.  But you can find the Fay public events page here to check for a link when that gets updated.
