Family Engagement Makes a Difference
At Charlotte Bilingual Preschool, we view families as their children’s first teachers. Research indicates that one of the most significant factors in children’s early educational success is introduction to books at home. By age 2, children who are read to regularly already display larger vocabularies and higher cognitive skills than their peers! An engaged family can support and sustain their children’s education at home and ensure that they’re successful long-term.
Preschool Program Families
Our Family Programs empower families with the confidence, connections, and knowledge to support their child’s education long-term. Families build community, learn parenting strategies, and gain leadership opportunities through volunteering, Family Cafés, and workshops based on their interests and needs. We also offer employment opportunities for families, including training as substitute teachers in the Preschool Program or Early Learning Specialists in our ParentChild+ pilot.
Free ESL Through CPCC
We offer free English as a Second Language courses for families of Preschool Program students in partnership with Central Piedmont Community College. We offer two levels that are both conducted in English and meet three times per week at CltBP.
