Parent & Family Learning Lab


Since 2019 the Parent and Family Learning Lab has been uplifting whole families by providing structured, culturally responsive literacy support for children and their adult household members, parenting support, and family activities. The PFLL is a 3-way partnership among Project READ (Parkland College Adult Education), The Center for Family and Community Engagement at Champaign Unit 4 Schools, and the Douglass Branch of the Champaign Public Library. The PFLL nourishes and develops family-based learning by providing customized activities that promote a community of learning. Dedicated specialists from our partnership create and facilitate our activities, make regular support phone calls to parents, and coordinate one-to-one tutoring for children and their adult household members.

Registered Families will enjoy a light meal from a contributing community restaurant, followed by:

1. Free one-to-one adult tutoring in ESL, basic math or reading;

2. Parenting educational and support activities;

3. PACT (Parent and Child Together activities) such as family yoga or scavenger hunts;

4. Library Activities such as story time and free, high-interest, level appropriate books;

5. Children’s activities and academic support.

*Activities are in-person at Stratton Academy on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00-8:00pm. Walk-in enrollment welcome and encouraged!
