SCC Child Development Center and St. Charles City-County Library Foundation team up to support children’s literacy

April 22, 2014

The SCC Child Development Center (CDC) is partnering with the St. Charles City-County Library Foundation to better support children’s literacy.

The children enrolled at the Child Development Center proudly display their Ready-to-Read Activity Kits at St. Charles Community College.

Last month the Library Foundation donated 48 Ready-to-Read Activity Kits to the CDC. Ready-to-Read Activity Kits include a book, related games and activities for parents and children to enjoy together. These kits are available for families to check out from the CDC.

Ready-to-Read Activity Kits empower parents to teach their own children, making it easier for busy parents to become involved in their child’s learning and can help parents understand the importance of reading and interacting with their children. 

“We are thrilled to partner with the St. Charles City-County Library Foundation this year,” said Janelle Meyers, assistant director of the Child Development Center. “Together our organizations are better preparing children to be successful in school.” 

Every family enrolled in the CDC receives a Ready-to-Read Activity Kit filled with information for parents about the benefits of reading with their children and several books for families’ own home collection.

St. Charles Community College is a public, comprehensive two-year community college with associate degrees and certificate programs in the arts, business, sciences and career-technical fields. SCC provides workforce training and community-based personal and professional development as well as cultural, recreational and entertainment opportunities.
