Foundations of ESOL for Families

You are your child’s first and best teacher. Our Foundations of ESOL for Families classes help non-English speakers better comprehend, speak, write and use English in their daily lives, while also developing the skills needed to support your child’s physical, emotional and academic growth.

In our adult classes, students will learn English important to parents with young and school-aged children. At the same time, your children will learn English and socialize in a fun, play-based learning environment. Parents will also have regular opportunities to discuss parenting and child development and learn strategies to support their child’s education at home.

These classes are offered to all students from beginner to advanced levels. All classes will begin online and may transition to in-person classes based on guidance from the local school district and the State Department of Education.
