CENTRE FOR FAMILY LITERACY SOCIETY OF ALBERTA

"It’s never too early! Children who begin life in a learning environment are more likely to succeed in school and in life. Parents are their children’s first teachers. The Centre provides parents with the tools they need to support their children’s early language and literacy development, setting them up for a lifetime of learning and discovery. It’s never too late! We also support adult learners on their journey, providing a safe environment where they can learn in a community of shared experiences, once again building on strengths and meeting the individual needs of those learners."
