Storytime Literacy Program 

 

EPIC’s family Storytime Literacy program is for families (parents and children) focused on developing literacy skills, incorporating lessons based on universally accepted teaching methods into a number of themed interactive experiences.


The overriding objectives of the program are to:

  • Increase oral language skills by increasing phonemic awareness through listening activities and increasing ability to produce comparable sounds;
  • Increase pre-emergent reading skills by predicting story outcomes; increasing print awareness; and increasing attention span

In addition to the literacy component, EPIC selects themes so the children are learning and experiencing special life lessons during the Storytime events.
