The Huntsville Madison County Public Library is pleased to announce the addition of the innovative Kiwanis Little Learners Project. Part reference center, part workshop, part play space, Kiwanis Little Learners offers parents, grandparents or caregivers a place to help their toddlers have fun while developing pre-reading skills.
“It’s very important to start children on the path to reading as early as possible.” said Laurel Best, Executive Director of the Huntsville Madison County Public Library, “This program gives pre-readers a jump-start to future success.”
The Kiwanis Little Learners Project is made possible by a generous grant from the Kiwanis Club of Huntsville.
There are four core elements to this project; additional staff training, hands-on workshops, a resource center and play space. The resource center and play space will be unveiled in the near future. They’ll be located in the Main Library branch’s youth area.
The inaugural workshops for the fall were filled on the first day of registration. The next series of Kiwanis Little Learner workshops will be in January 2011. They’re free and open to parents, grandparents or caregivers and their little learner aged 1 to 3 years. This is a five week program. Each workshop focuses on a different topic with a specialist on-site to answer questions. Topics for the workshops include speech, nutrition, child development and physical fitness.
