Family Literacy First

Family Literacy First Logo

Family Literacy First is a program that aims to bring parents and children together to practice family literacy through free online resources. The program offers resources in different languages, including English, French, Simplified Chinese, Tagalog and Arabic, so families can learn together in their first language, or practice a second or third language. Parents are a child’s first and most important teacher, and whether you’re engaging in a learning activity in your first or second language, both the parent and child can benefit.
