Children and Parents Reading Together

Plans are underway to expand the Children and Parents Reading Together program to serve up to ten Head Start schools in Collier County. The program, run in conjunction with Collier County Public Schools Head Start , will serve at-risk, low income, four-year-old children each week in up to ten schools throughout the coming school year. The key element in the program is to work with both the child and the parent to encourage and foster the use of English and reading, not only in the classroom, but also in the home.

Since English is not the first language for 24% of our Collier County students, (and significantly more of the Head Start students), this program is critical to their future.

Your $50 donation will be one of the keys to unlock the gift of English!
