Do you love to read? Do you love children? Do you have a story to share with the next generation?
Sounds like Sandparents is just for you!
Sandparents is a fun and interactive reading program offered to children ages 3-6 years old from Brighton. Mature adults (Sandparents) are partnered with a child to read, sing, play games, make crafts, story tell and generally interact together to form a mutually beneficial friendship.
The Sandparents program offers a positive and enriched environment for children to learn and practice Early Literacy Skills.
To volunteer as a Sandparent or to inquire about the program, please contact Pat Artkin at 613-242-4054 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. You can also register online at our website www.sandparents.com
It's a small time commitment, but it can make a BIG impact in the lives of these children.
