Even Start Family Literacy Program

Moms looking at a globeEven Start is a free family literacy program for Arlington residents who have children under the age of 10.  Our goal is to empower parents who are new to the country to help their children be academically successful.  English classes are held 5 mornings a week.  Parents also learn about literacy development, the US education system, Arlington Public School programs, and community resources.  Children between the ages of 1 and 4 may participate in early childhood education classes on site while their parents study.

The program is housed at Barcroft Elementary School at 625 S. Wakefield St. It serves qualifying families from throughout Arlington County.  Classes are held daily from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon. A break time is provided during which parents may spend time with their young children. Breakfast and lunch are provided.

For more information or to enroll, contact Sara Mulrooney at 703-228-8846 or sara.mulrooney@apsva.us.
