Three family literacy preschools operated by Mt. Diablo Adult Education are helping children to start kindergarten better prepared.
The program provides high-quality preschool for children while their parents take ESL (English as a Second Language) classes adjacent to the preschool.
Once a week, parents join their children to practice reading in English and to engage in fun learning activities together. The parents are also instructed to do literacy activities with their children at home, such as taking them to the library or reading and telling stories together.
