Early Childhood Residencies and Storytimes


Early childhood residencies are literacy skill-building programs focused on kindergarten readiness. We teach 8- week units grounded in Illinois Early Learning Standards. Residencies are hosted at in-home daycares or early childhood centers. This program is only currently offered for community partners/ organizations and schools.
