“Usted aprende, su hijo avanza. – You learn, your child advances.”
AVANCE’s core program is the Parent-Child Education Program (PCE). This program focuses on serving low-income families with children between birth and three years of age. It follows the calendar school year, providing 27 weekly classes, 4 hours each, for 9 months of programming. Activities take place within elementary schools and community centers located in at-risk communities.
Parents’ classes include parenting instruction, educational toy making, ESL, and resource sharing from the community. While parents are participating in class, their children are being cared for in an adjacent class space that offers early learning modules and age-appropriate learning with a focus on play, pre-literacy, and school readiness. The PCE program also includes food and transportation, as well as monthly home visits to assess the progress of each family.
