About CENTRE FOR FAMILY LITERACY SOCIETY OF ALBERTA
The Centre for Family Literacy was one of the first centres in Canada to focus on the development of literacy within the family context. We provide a continuum of programs that enable individuals and families to participate at any stage of their literacy development. Each year over 14,000 Alberta adults and children access our programs, training, services and resources.
Our unique and innovative programs support language and literacy development within a family context and promote parent-child bonding and close family relationships. Programs for parents and their infants and toddlers include Books for Babies and Rhymes that Bind. Programs for parents and their preschool children include Edmonton Literacy Classroom on Wheels (C.O.W.) Bus, Learn Together Grow Together, 3-2-1 Fun, and the Alberta Prairie Classroom on Wheels (C.O.W.) Bus. Programs for adults include Adult Tutor Program, Literacy Links, and Adult Courses and Workshops.
We also support the development of family literacy across Alberta and Canada through training opportunities, workshops, support services and resources.
