Save the Children Promotes Literacy at Home
The organization creates learning opportunities for children from pre-birth to age 8, particularly in homes with limited resources. Through home-visit programs, Save the Children works with parents to raise awareness of educational needs and strengthen parent-child bonds. Often times the first step is bringing books into the home.
Our mission, really, is to make sure that children are successful…We know that vocabulary and language have a high correlation to a child’s success in school. That’s where we start. It’s about reading, singing, rhyming — and making sure parents use everyday routines to do that, to talk with their children frequently. (Read Brightly)
