Literacy Programming at the Children’s Museum of South Carolina

The Children’s Museum of South Carolina in Myrtle Beach will implement a new literacy program targeting low-income families with young children. The program will run from July 13 – August 5, 2016. South Carolina Humanities supported this program with a Fast Track Literary Grant in May 2016.

Through the Children’s Museum of South Carolina’s new Literacy Programming, parents will have a one-on-one opportunity to meet with an educator to receive information, resources, and instruction regarding their child’s literacy development. The parents and children will then work to complete age-appropriate incentivized reading goals, using Lit Kits, e-readers, themed program guides, and take-home learning guides.

The hope is that this model program will continue in the future at the Children’s Museum of South Carolina. For more information about the program, contact the Children’s Museum of South Carolina at 843-946-9469.
