What is the Fun Van?
The Fun Van is a FREE program for parents/grandparents/caregivers and accompanying children ages 0-5 years old.
We meet once a week for 8 weeks. Parents and/or caregivers learn:
- Raising a Reader:
This program can foster a love of books by developing a habit of reading with your child from a variety of quality literature you borrow and return each week. It also teaches parents reading strategies to expand their child's thinking and promotes language and literacy development.
- Early Childhood STEP (Systematic Training for Effective Parenting):
This parenting education program, taught in conjunction with Raising a Reader, teaches helpful parenting techniques to improve family communication and encourage cooperation, plus effective discipline strategies that promote self-esteem and mutual respect.
Each week of class parents and children together enjoy:
- Free Play
- Crafts, Songs, and/or Storytime
- Receive a free book, small toy, and a light snack.
