Family Literacy Events

Family Literacy Events

Since 2005, Investing in Children has partnered with the Thames Valley District School Board to provide inquiry based Family Literacy Events to children in grades JK- 3.

Family Literacy Events begin with a story, then the children and their parents or caregivers rotate through a series of 8-10 activities that engage the families in unexpected ways of developing literacy. Each station also includes methods to bring the learning into the home. With inquiry based learning, the students' questions, ideas and observations are placed at the centre of the learning experience.

There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book.
— Frank Serafini

Family Literacy Events run three times each school year in multiple schools across Thames Valley District School Board. We also regularly participate in National Family Literacy Day as well as other Family literacy initiatives held across our community.

Family Literacy Nights are generously supported by TD Bank Group and Healthy Kids Community Challenge.
