The South Pasadena Public Library is offering an Early Literacy Family Workshop – “Playing, Discovering, Reflecting” – on Wednesday, Dec. 6, from 10-11 a.m. in the Library Community Room at 1115 El Centro St.
This workshop is designed for children ages 2 to 4 years old and their parents and caregivers. During the workshop, parents and caregivers will learn about creating learning experiences and environments that support the development of their child’s complex intellectual thinking, deep conceptual thinking, and creative problem-solving abilities – skills that will help them throughout their lives and better prepare them for school. After a brief discussion of research that outlines the skills and conditions that matter most for a child’s success in school, the children and their caregivers will rotate through three creative, fun, open-ended, hands-on activities. All supplies will be provided.
Registration is required and will be limited to the first 40 people. Sign up for this event at southpasadenaca.gov/register or contact the Children’s Services Librarians at firstname.lastname@example.org or (626) 403-7358 for any questions.
The South Pasadena Public Library is located at 1100 Oxley St. The library is open Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. Upon request made no later than four business days before the event, the city will provide a reasonable accommodation for a qualified person with a disability to have equal access to the event.
