Family Literacy Week

Family Literacy Week takes place from Sunday, January 24 to Saturday, January 30. It is a time for families to have fun and explore many different types of literacy and how literacy skills impact our lives.  In addition to reading and writing, food literacy, health literacy, physical literacy and cultural literacy are some of the different types of literacies we use every day.

Family Literacy Week is supported by the Central Okanagan Early Years Partnership Committee
