Quality Counts Literacy Program

The Quality Counts Literacy program offers your program or family child care home the service of an onsite reading visit.  The Literacy Specialist will read stories to the children and extend that story with an activity.   Each child will then receive their own copy of the book that was read and the provider receives an activity resource to use in their program. 

We are currently in a collaboration with WEIU that introduces your program to the use of transmedia in your learning environment. Visit   123 & ABC: Math and Reading are fun for me for more information on this program.

The Resource Library is available to any child care provider listed on the CCR&R database.  There is a small fee that is good for one fiscal year (July 1-June 30) The Quality Counts van will deliver and pick up the resources right to your home or center.  There is a large selection of resources available for use such as books, cd’s, activity kits, puzzles, board games, and storybook activities.

Call Penny at 1-800-545-7439 or 581-6698 or email at prkrabel@eiu.edu to schedule a visit or receive more information.
