Parent-Child workshops are back at the McAllen Public Library.
The library was recently granted $6,000 to expand their “Family Place” to the library’s Lark Branch. The program allows parents to bond with their children while teaching them new vocabulary. During the 5-week course parents can learn how to be their child’s first teacher.
Kate Horan, McAllen Public Library Director says, “We have research professionals that come in like speech pathologists or it might be a pediatrician to speak to the parents in a very casual environment while their children are playing. Now these toys that we have, they’re not just toys they’re learning manipulative toys, so they help to emerge literacy in our littlest babies.”
Parents can register for this free course at the McAllen Public Library. The program begins February 7.
