UPP: Upgrading for Parents with Pre-Schoolers
UPP is a perfect program for literacy instructors and adult educators hoping to introduce more family literacy content into their programs.
UPP contains prepared activities grouped into a series of parenting topics or themes. Offered alongside the adult activities is a schedule of children’s activities, for those programs that offer childcare.
UPP is suitable for adults at LBS levels 2–3, but it is also very adaptable for participants with higher or lower skill levels. The fact that the topics are so relevant will help parents find common ground in their shared interests and concerns.
Most UPP participants will be parents, but parents-to-be, grandparents, aunts and uncles, foster parents and in-home childcare providers will also find the program useful.
The UPP program develops parenting strategies and essential skills in order to help participants reach their personal goals at home, in the workplace and in their communities.
