Preparing Children for School with our Early Literacy Services (ELS)

Family ACCESS helps to prepare children for school through our Early Literacy Services (ELS) programming. The ELS program provides two national evidence-based programs for families with children ages 18 months-5 years. Our literacy specialists work in the comfort of a family’s home through home visits or in parent/child literacy groups at multiple sites. The Parent-Child Home Program is a ‘learning through play’ home visiting program. Raising a Reader offers a lending library approach to helping families learn strategies of interactive reading.
