Parenting and Family Literacy Center

Parenting and Family Literacy Centres are operated in 8 Ottawa-Carleton District School Board elementary schools with the support of the Ministry of Education.

The Centres welcome parents/caregivers and their children from birth to age 6 to help prepare them for starting school. The Centres also encourage families to be a part of their children’s early learning by: 

  • Helping children build essential literacy and numeracy skills through stories, music, reading and playing;
  • Offering a book-lending library in different languages so parents can read to their children in their first language;
  • Familiarizing children and families with school routines;
  • Giving children and families the chance to spend time with other families; and
  • Linking families with appropriate community resources for special needs, health and other related services.
