Parent-Child Literacy Strategy: Progress Report
Alberta Advanced Education
The Parent-Child Literacy Strategy (P-CLS) focuses on intergenerational educational approaches that integrate adult literacy instruction and early oral language development for children from birth to age six for economically and socially disadvantaged families. The objectives of the Parent-Child Literacy Strategy are: (1) To enhance the oral language, early literacy and social interaction skills of children from birth to age six so that they are better able to achieve success at home, school and the community; (2) To strengthen and build the basic literacy skills of parents; (3) To support and foster the involvement of parents in their children's learning; and (4) To develop and enhance community-based partnerships that support the development of language and literacy skills of families. The P-CLS is made up of a number of key components. These include provincial co-ordination and planning, and support for the delivery of family literacy programs through training, funding, information, needs assessments and evaluation. Much of the support to local programs is offered by the Centre for Family Literacy. The Centre for Family Literacy is a key partner which is funded to provide consultative advice and assistance, training and other services to support family literacy in Alberta. In addition, the First Nations, Metis and Inuit (FNMI) Education Policy Framework also supports the development of a distinct Aboriginal family literacy component of the P-CLS. Appended are: (1) Description of Common Family Literacy Models; (2) Family Literacy Initiative Fund (FLIF) Contracted Programs--By Location; (3) Number of Contracted Programs Delivering Models; (4) Direct Service Delivery Hours by Model; and (5) Number and Percentage of Participants--Aboriginal and Other Language/Cultural Groups.
