Mothers Club Family Learning Center launched this week an "e-March for Literacy" campaign to support school-readiness programs and adult education programming for more than 100 parents because the single greatest predictor of a child's educational success is the education level of their mother.
"This March, you can make a great impact on the future success of our community's most vulnerable, at-risk children and families by donating to our e-March for Literacy Campaign," said Hector La Farga, executive director of Mothers' Club Family Learning Center in Pasadena
According to research, the single greatest predictor of children's educational success is the education level of their mothers. La Farga says that's why Mothers' Club offers a two-generation learning approach which has been proven to produce statistically significant outcomes for both children and their parents.
Donate today and double the impact of your gift. Each donation to the e-March for Literacy Campaign will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a challenge grant from First 5 LA/Families in Schools.
The effectiveness of early-learning programs is being debated right now in Congress. President Barack Obama's proposal to significantly expand preschool programs could run into roadblocks as Republican lawmakers and others question the effectiveness of existing early-learning programs.
But there is mounting research that high-quality early-childhood programs benefit children. The two-generation learning program at Mothers' Club prepares children for kindergarten while helping parents build the skills they need to help their children succeed in school and in life. Parents and children learn in a safe, nurturing environment, under the guidance of highly skilled professionals. Two-Generation Learning means that parents and children simultaneously acquire new skills and knowledge that result in positive outcomes for both generations.
