NY BOCES Parent-Child Home Program


For Granted donated needed toys and educational materials to help support the BOCES Parent-Child Home Program which is designed to stimulate the development of educationally at-risk Pre-K children. Trained Home Visitors model to parents/caregivers how to talk and read to their two- and three-year-old children, using developmentally appropriate books and toys. This family literacy program is home-based and provides educational services for each child, preparing him/her to enter pre-school at age four. Children who complete the Parent-Child Home Program enter school ready to learn and graduate from high school at the same rate as middle-income students. This program provides services for 40 at-risk families, and funding is through subscription in Suffolk County school districts.
