We are very pleased to share with you the good news that the Ahearn Family Foundation has awarded CfAL with a $2,500 grant. The grant will be used to further implement our Digital Literacy for Early Learners, “A Primer for Parents” Program (DLEL) in the Hartford, Connecticut community.
The DLEL program has been designed to increase disadvantaged parents’ awareness of the benefit of early learning, and help them engage in educating their children, age birth to 5, so their children can start kindergarten with the critical skills they’ll need to learn and succeed in school.
The program combines platform instruction, along with detailed instruction and discussion about use of Libraries and engaging early learner educational websites targeted for each specific age level from birth to 5.
The primary goal: Children from disadvantaged families are prepared and ready to learn and succeed when entering/starting school
We express our thanks to the Ahearn Family Foundation for supporting the DLEL program and helping to improve public school children’s education.
