Parents are a child’s first teacher.   By partnering with agencies like Hill Country Family Services and Hill Country Pregnancy Care Center, we are able to educate mom’s on the importance of reading aloud to their children from birth.  A mother’s reading ability strongly dictates her ability to read to her child and impacts how families create a reading environment within the home.

Boerne Reads provides brochures that parents can take about the importance of reading to a child and we put posters at our partner locations to help educate mom’s on what regular reading can do for their children.  We participate in parenting classes and life skills classes throughout Boerne.  Should a parent need literacy classes, we are able to point them in the right direction.
