Did you know that reading aloud to a child just 15 minutes every day is one of the most important things you can do to help prepare them for Kindergarten and beyond? However, less than 50% of children in this country are read to every day.
Join Oakland Family Services as we work to bridge the gap and ensure that our preschoolers have the language and literacy skills they need to succeed in school and in life.
We are searching for individuals and corporate groups who are interested in coming in to our preschool classrooms to share stories, participate in meaningful discussions about the story, and engage in a fun activity with the children (which can be led and planned with teacher assistance, at your request).
If you are interested in simply reading, that is fine too!
You have the option of bringing in a book of your choice, or you can select from the books we have in the classroom.
The available time slots for reading are 9:30 am or 3 pm, Monday's through Thursday's, through the entire month of March. Please sign up early to secure a date and time for yourself and/or group!
