• Storyland: A Family Literacy Festival

    for Alameda County pre-kindergarten (pre-K), transitional kindergarten (TK), and kindergarten (K) children ONLY, and the adults in their lives

    Research shows that high-quality early childhood education promotes pathways to success, from preschool to college and career. For this reason, we are hosting our second annual family literacy event!

    Our Storyland 2019 event has just passed. Please check back in the Spring of 2020 for our Storyland 2020 date!

    Location: Alameda County Office of Education, 313 W. Winton Ave., Hayward

    Adults will:

    • Learn ready-to-use strategies to promote a love for reading and combat “summer slide” (when some skills learned during the year are forgotten)

    Early learners will:

    • Experience interactive read-alouds based on favorite stories--in English, Mandarin, and Spanish
    • Receive books, book bags, and raffle prizes
