This past week, I had the honor of attending the National Center for Families Learning Summit in Detroit, Michigan. As a Wonder Lead Ambassador for Wonderopolis, I have the opportunity to participate in amazing events, but this was by far one of the best. The National Center for Families Learningfocuses on programs to encourage families learning together. Today, learning is not confined to the classroom, but can happen anywhere. Starting in the home, parents are the first and most important teachers a child will ever have. NCFL emphasizes a two-generation approach to family learning that centers on the whole family.
NCFL’s longest and most dedicated partner is Toyota Family Learning.Toyota has made a 46 million dollar investment in families across the United States. Focusing on a multi-generational solution to educational challenges which emphasize families learning and achieving together, Toyota has and continues to make a visible impact on family literacy.
