Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors


Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors is a nationally recognized 10-session group education program for parents of children 0-5 years old, to help them understand the importance of their role as their child’s first teacher and increase their child’s school readiness. Developed in California, specifically for Latino parents, it also helps them learn to be their child’s advocate once they start their formal education.

 

Centro Hispano has partnered with Ready.Set.READ! and taken the lead in bringing the program to Berks County. A certified trainer works to train both parents, as well as staff from other community agencies. Participants achieve sizable gains in their knowledge and skills in language and literacy development for their children as a result.
