Connecting with young children brings them immense joy. When we invite young children to play and present them with challenges, they are eager to get to work and solve them! We remind parents to be an observer. Follow their childs' lead as they struggle and explore, then respond with conversation, support ,or guidance. This is the dance of engagement!
 
 
At the site visits, parents engage in playful learning activities with their children and learn how to access resources to repeat these activities at home.  Play Smart Activities are tied to our Pinterest boards for easy reference, to play at home, or extend independently.  
 
 

 
We plan playful learning-based activities for young children.  Activities are based on state and national standards for young children and tied to Creative Curriculum & Teaching Strategies Gold.

Connecting with Technology: 

TO KEEP PLAYING AT HOME! 

 Our technology components are for getting connected with successful, science-based learning programs that deliver interactive content.  Families will be given guidance and practice to access and explore the technology components of Play Smart Literacy.

 

Our technology components are designed to provide ongoing 24/7 support to families-

no matter where their lives take them in

the near future.

The End Result

We aim to Identify and connect with families in deep poverty who can benefit from family literacy services.  

 

 

We hope to give young children and their parents experience with EC learning and development activities.  By providing access and knowledge of how to utilize technology we will help parents support early learning for their child.

 

 

Our goal is promoting resilience and motivation in families to foster early learning for their children and to be a strong language model for their family.  We succeed when we see families moving forward on an education plan for their children and themselves.
