Grand Opening at LMdCU

This program aims to introduce preschoolers to the enjoyment of listening to stories and learning about the act of reading and other related literacy activities. The program offers three and four year old children a time to sit and listen to animated bilingual stories at their levels of understanding. They meet Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Centro Comunitario de Educación for one hour sessions with the eager Chapman University student volunteers.
