Early Literacy Story


The Knowing & Growing program has been very beneficial for my family. I have learned so much about early childhood development, in addition to having fun every week. There are so many songs and books I didn’t even know existed and my son enjoys them all!

I was a scientist before becoming a mother and was wrapped up in my career; I hadn’t given much thought on the “how” I was going to work on my child’s early development. I was aware of the basics (of course), read to your child, sing, etc. but there is a wealth of information the Knowing and Growing Program provides to new and veteran parents/caregivers.

I look forward to attending the classes because it reminds (on a weekly basis) to never stop working with your child and their development. My son and I have been attending the Knowing and Growing programs for the past year, and we will continue to attend for many more years to come. It is the most rewarding feeling when you see improvements in your child’s understanding, social interactions, and overall happiness. I tell all the Moms I know to sign their kids up for the K&G classes because I believe in the benefits of program.

Thank you Scottsdale Library for providing this excellent and free resource.
