The Family Literacy Center at St. Paul's
Housed in the Church buildings as an outreach ministry of St. Paulís, the Family Literacy Program is currently serving in excess of 25 children. As a requirement, all parents of any child enrolled in the program must either be in high school or attend the Adult Education Center from 8:00-11:30 a.m., where they work on their G.E.D. or high school degree to improve their lives. While the parents are studying, their children receive a nutritional breakfast and snack, participate in morning singing and learning activities, interact with the story of the day, play in the learning centers, and enjoy outdoor time on the playground.
Parents also participate in learning activities at St. Paulís Child Care Center. Each day all parents return to St. Paulís for parenting classes, which are held at 11:30 a.m. Monday-Thursday.Parenting classes center on such skills and family activities as healthy eating and the importance of nutrition; making time for self and managing stress; raising smart and healthy children; understanding the stages of childhood growth and development; job preparation; and balancing life, finances, work, and whatever comes.
