Support Observe Achieve Read Program (SOAR)

All families with children from birth to five years of age are welcome to join the SOAR program and create a strong foundation for their children’s future. Parent educators will work one on one with families to educate parents on the social, emotional, and academic developmental milestones of their child. Parent educators will provide families with literacy activities, small motor crafts, large muscle games, and other fun learning activities. These activities promote parent education, child literacy, and motor development.

Our parent educators will also assess the needs of your family and help connect you to our partners in the community and access additional resources through our distribution center.
