The grant to the Library Foundation of Martin County underwrites the cost of certified teachers and supplies for a September-to-May twice weekly program to be held at the Golden Gate Center for Enrichment and also in Hobe Sound. The goal is to provide 3- and 4-year old children with pre-literacy skills in preparation for kindergarten.

Sponsored in part by Mariner Sands Charity Week and The Hobe Sound Community Chest, this program differs from standard voluntary pre-K education because the family members also participate in the lessons. “Some families do not enroll their children in voluntary pre-K programs because of transportation issues or because they are not comfortable with the child entering a school setting that young,” said Martin County Library System Director Jennifer Salas.

“We will be providing family activity bags to extend the lessons at home, as well as sending home a set of age-appropriate books for the family to keep,” said Salas. Translators will be provided for Spanish-speaking parents.
