Cotswold School is partnering with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Public Library to introduce the “Every Child Read to Read” program in the public schools. Every Child Ready to Read (ECRR) is a parent education initiative. It stresses early literacy and equipping the primary adults in a child’s life with the tools to facilitate success. (http://www.everychildreadytoread.org/)
ECRR uses five basic tools: talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing to encourage literacy development in the early years.
Volunteers will spend two hours with a library facilitator who will better educate us about the program and equip us with the tools and principles to carry it out with our families at Cotswold. This is a great opportunity for mentors, tutors, and parents who want to give their own children and the children in our Cotswold family early literacy tools.
