WINDSOR, N.J. -- Mercer County Community College has begun the second
phase of its "Parent Education and Early Literacy Project" at
two sites in Trenton. Parents of young children are invited to take advantage
of the program's free services, and potential students are invited to
learn more about the program's "Early Literacy Seminar."
After attending the sessions last fall, parent Dorothy Louder of Trenton said, "This program has helped me learn how to take care of my son. You understand them more - the way they think."
program provides free workshops for parents and young children each Saturday
from 1 to 3:30 p.m., with refreshments. While parents attend the workshops,
their children are part of an enrichment program conducted by college
students enrolled in an "Early
Literacy Seminar." Many paraprofessionals in the Trenton school
district have signed up for the seminar. The next semester of the class
will begin in January.
