First Steps Early Literacy

A program for the Ossining School District community.

Generously funded by John P. and Constance A. Curran Charitable Foundation, Rebecca and Arthur Samberg, Sexauer Foundation, Mr. David Swope and the Frog Rock Foundation.

The goal of First Steps is to support and encourage literacy for all Ossining children from the earliest age in order to lay a good foundation for academic achievement. Good reading skills are fundamental to academic success.

We support and encourage literacy for children ages 0-4 through comprehensive services available to the entire family. We believe that by offering any necessary services to the parent, we enable the parent to provide his/her child with early literacy enrichment.

How can families participate in First Steps activities?

Please complete a registration form and return to the First Steps office at First Presbyterian Church at 34 South Highland Avenue. For more information, please call 914-373-4882.
