A&O has been selected by City’s First Readers (CFR) to develop and implement a comprehensive and rigorous evaluation plan. CFR, an initiative of the New York City Council, is a collaboration of not-for-profits and public libraries with the goal of implementing community-wide early-literacy immersion programs. They offer children literacy experiences at their homes, schools, daycare centers, libraries, hospitals and other key locations throughout their neighborhoods.
Endorsed by the American Pediatric Association, City’s First Readers has worked to address the literacy crisis and education disparities facing New York City. By investing in effective, high-quality early childhood literacy services, programs, and resources for children from birth to age 5, City’s First Readers works to ensure that all children — regardless of their social and economic backgrounds — have a solid foundation from which to start school successfully.
A&O was chosen for their years of evaluation experience in early childhood and literacy related programming and is thrilled to support this important initiative. Call or email us for more information!
