Helping Foster a Love of Reading

Thanks to the generous support of the Marks Trust, and our wonderful donors, we are rolling out early literacy programming in all our centers! The program, called Hug-a-Book, creates a “Culture of Literacy” that involves parents, children, and center staff in a world of stories, language skills, interaction, and incredible growth. The goal of the Hug-a-Book project in our centers is to capture the hearts and minds of children through the use of books and story in order to prepare them for future school success, develop language and communication, enable self-expression,and enrich their imagination.
