Applications online for new Dollar General Early Literacy initiative

Calling all early childhood programs! NCFL is now accepting applications to participate in an innovative initiative based on the findings of the National Early Literacy Panel (NELP).

Three to five early childhood programs will be selected to receive parent workshops at their sites.  The programs will also receive materials created by NCFL and funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. The deadline to complete the application is noon (Eastern Time) on June 22.

In case the NELP report is new to you, the report will provide the most comprehensive synthesis to date of scientific research on the development of early literacy in young children.  It will also identify interventions and practices that produce positive results in literacy for preschool children.

So go online and complete the application! NCFL will notify the selected programs by July 15.
