“For years I never raised my eyes from the floor.  I thought life had nothing more to offer. But now I have discovered that being a woman does not need to limit me, it does not mean I deserve less respect, or have less to say. Every human being has worth, and deserves an opportunity to grow.”

Early Childhood Education

The early childhood education program fosters healthy parent-child relationships, enthusiasm for learning, and social and emotional development of the children.

The Adelante Mujeres Early Childhood Education (ECE) Program is an on-site bilingual school that teaches early literacy skills and builds kindergarten readiness among the pre-school aged children of the women participating in our Adult Education program.

The ECE program exposes children to a variety of experiences with print motivation and awareness, letter knowledge, the sounds of language, and other early literacy skills to equip pre-school children with the building blocks necessary for success in school. 

Activities include interactive literacy activities, music class with moms, and one hour each day where the children interact with their “Reading Pals”, community volunteers who join the children for reading and skill building. Visit our Volunteer Page for information on becoming a Reading Pal.
