Mission Statement

ALTERNATIVE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMING FOR LOW-INCOME FAMILIES, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHOSE FIRST LANGUAGE IS NOT ENGLISH

The Family Learning Center's mission is: "To encourage successful lifelong learning and economic self-sufficiency for families of diverse cultures and limited incomes in a learning environment where families feel nurtured, respected, and empowered." We believe that family and a supportive community offer the best framework for healthy, social, academic, civic, and ethical development of children and families. By offering educational opportunities for the entire family, we strive to nurture a culture that values education, self-reliance, and community service.

Program 1

Early Childhood Education

The Early Childhood Education program provides low-income preschool age children and their families with meaningful opportunities to master those skills needed for success in school and in life. In March 2015, FLC received accreditation from the NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) for this program. FLC also received a level four score from Colorado Shines, the new Quality Rating and Improvement System from the Colorado Office of Early Childhood. A level four is the highest level rating available! Five days a week we provide quality literacy-based, multicultural, and bilingual preschool classes for children, and full-time childcare for their working parents that is affordable and accessible to everyone.

Program 2

At Risk Youth

Some of the goals of the At-Risk Youth program are to provide:

• Academic Excellence: Activities are designed to address the needs of at-risk students in Boulder Valley and St. Vrain Valley School Districts who historically have not achieved academic success levels as compared to their more affluent counterparts.

• Workforce and Career Development: Activities are designed to enhance computer and technical knowledge in order to help at-risk youth gain skills that are required in higher paying careers and jobs.

• Civic Engagement: We teach students how systems work, especially within public schools. Our tutors and staff members teach at-risk youth to become advocates for themselves, their families and communities.

• Arts and Cultural: We provide at-risk students affordable access to the arts through onsite weekly art and culture classes, field trips to local museums and art shows.

Program 3

Adult Education

The Family Learning Center also offers adult-education programs to give parents and other adults the opportunity to complete their high school education, improve and increase employment opportunities, and enhance their literacy skills for family and self-empowerment. Classes in English as a Second Language (ESL) level I and II, GED, job internship programs for welfare recipients, and career-development training are referred to Intercambio, Boulder Reads, and Boulder Valley Literacy Programs. For more than 34 years, FLC has provided low-income and culturally diverse children and families with valuable opportunities to become educated, productive members of society. By offering opportunities to the entire family, we create families who value education, self-reliance, and community service.
