What Families And Schools Are Saying

Ministry of Education

"The centre has helped our family a lot. I now spend a lot of time with my son reading and playing with him. He has learned so many new things. He sings songs, recites poems, and knows his numbers and alphabet. We are so happy that he is getting familiar with the school."

Shathra Shaba, Parent, St. Francis de Sales Catholic School Parenting and Family Literacy Centre in Toronto.

"Since we opened in September, parents and caregivers have become so involved in the program that it is like their second home. As the children are getting used to the transitions in the classroom, their parents help out in so many ways - they are really engaged in the room and in their children's learning."

Lynda Raike, Program Facilitator, Memorial (City) Public School Parenting and Family Literacy Centre in Hamilton

"I have seen a mother who had difficulty reading when she first came to the centre pick up a book and start to read it with her child - after just a few weeks at the centre. This is a gift she is able to give her daughter because our education system had the vision to put this centre in our school."

Susan Moroz, Principal, Queen Elizabeth Public School in Leamington
