The Children’s Reading Alliance's First Teacher/Primer Maestro Program is 6 weeks of classes that are designed to empower parents and caregivers to recognize their role as their children's first and most important teacher.
Classes focus on literacy promotion through purposeful interaction at home. Classes lead parents through easy-to-incorporate techniques to boost their children's brain development and literacy skills.
Parents are always enticed to attend when we mention the materials that are included for all participants: 17 bilingual books (listed below) and several high-quality educational tools (toys) like alphabet floor puzzles, wooden beading set, colored counting bears, playdoh, etc.
