Early Learning Home Visitation
Children’s success and development start at home!
Our Home Visitation program offers individualized lessons, creative activities, and intentional goal-setting to ensure kids are ready to start Kindergarten. Our early learning staff will create connections with you and your young children to offer this support.
Visit schedules vary, depending on the preferences and needs of your family. This program is available to families in King County with children aged 2.5-5.
Family Literacy Class
The Family Literacy Class is a space for Afghan moms and their children ages 0-5 to engage in separate English lessons through age-appropriate learning activities. They come together to practice songs, games, and activities related to the lesson that parents can repeat with their children at home to promote learning for both parents and children. This class is a place to share parenting strategies, information, skills, and support that can help refugee kids and families thrive.
