ANWSD Early Education Program gets CLiF grant

WATERBURY CENTER — The ANWSD Early Education Program in Vergennes was recently one of 10 recipients of a Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLiF) grant. The awards go to organizations serving low-income and at-risk children in Vermont and New Hampshire.
The grant provides a fun and inspiring storytelling session with one of CLiF’s more than 60 Vermont and New Hampshire children’s author/illustrators and storytellers; a new on-site children’s library for the program; an optional literacy discussion for parents and family members to emphasize the importance of developing early literacy skills and tips for helping children do so; and two new high-quality books for each child to choose and keep.
The grant’s goals are to promote a love of reading and writing among children at high risk of developing low literacy skills, which is a critical early indicator of a child’s future academic and professional success. The grant is awarded biennially in Fall and Spring cycles.
