Parent and Family Literacy Center

Parenting and Family Literacy Centre

Welcome to the Parenting and Family Literacy Centre at
Severn Avenue Public School


Parenting and Family Literacy Centres are operated in 8 Ottawa-Carleton District School Board elementary schools with the support of the Ministry of Education.

T he Centres welcome parents/caregivers and their children from birth to age 6 to help prepare them for starting school. The Centres also encourage families to be a part of their children’s early learning by:

  • Helping children build essential literacy and numeracy skills through stories, music, reading and playing;
  • Offering a book-lending library in different languages so parents can read to their children in their first language;
  • Familiarizing children and families with school routines;
  • Giving children and families the chance to spend time with other families; and
  • Linking families with appropriate community resources for special needs, health and other related services.
