Dear Providers,
Save the date! Mark Your Calendars!
Read for the Record 2020 - is still on!
The Literacy Coalition and local partner PNC Bank have joined Jumpstart's national 'Read for the Record' campaign. 'Read for the Record' brings together millions of adults and children around the world each year to read the same book on the same day in order to raise awareness about the critical importance of early literacy and access to high-quality books.
This year Read for the Record will take place on October 29, 2020This year’s book is Evelyn Del Rey is Moving Away, by Meg Medina and illustrated by Sonia Sanchez, is a celebration of lasting friendship, the power of connection, and encountering change.
Join us! We will be sharing four special readings on social media so all providers and parents can participate. We will share two video readings from our dedicated board members, a video reading in Spanish, and a video reading in Creole.
We hope you will take a moment out of your day to either participate by reading the book yourself or tune in to our readings on Thursday. Ready to Learn. Ready for Life.

Prematurity Awareness Month 2020
39 Weeks Is The Goal!

Prematurity Awareness raises awareness, about the seriousness of premature birth. Preterm babies still carry a huge vulnerability to develop cerebral palsy, delays in development, hearing problems, and sight problems. Additionally, while neonatal death in the United States is low in comparison to most of the world, premature births account for a quarter of all neonatal deaths.
