NEW World Renowned- Parent-Child Home Program Kicks-Off At The Belle Center
The Belle Center is pressing forward to equip the diverse, low-socioeconomic children and their families on the Lower West Side of Buffalo with the tools needed for success in school and beyond through its NEW Parent-Child Home Program. Statistics show that students enrolled in Parent-Child Home Programs worldwide are more than 30 percent likely to graduate from high school than their peers who have not been in the program.
The New Parent-Child Home Program kicks-off February 7, 2011. The program is for children ages 1 and ½ to 4 years old. To enroll contact: PCHP Program Coordinator Nina Kean 716-845-0485 ext. 21.
The Parent-Child Home Program has over 40 years of proven success in improving the IQ assessments of at-risk children and their parents. Children will build early literacy skills-learning about shapes, colors, numbers and other educational concepts that will better prepare them for success in school. Through convenient weekly in-home sessions with trained home visitors, families work on model reading, playing and other literacy activities that not only enhance literacy skills, but strengthen family ties. Families enrolled in the program are given free weekly educational books or toys.
