Families – Fact Sheet (2012)

This fact sheet is one of a series prepared by the Canadian Literacy and Learning Network (CLLN) to address a variety of literacy-related topics.

The authors note that early literacy skills are the foundation for future learning, with research showing that the skills and capacity to learn that children develop by the age of six stay with them for a lifetime. Adults with strong literacy skills are more likely to be employed and to have higher-income jobs.

They encourage parents to set a positive example for their children; support family literacy programs; and get involved in Family Literacy Day, held every year on January 27.
