SPELL is now in Phase 3--surveying parents of 0-3 year olds that use their local public libraries in 5 communities in Colorado. We are so grateful to our partner libraries for administering the surveys--our thanks to you!
While the surveys come in and we analyze the data, please take a look at our research findings to date. These initial findings alone have significant implications for libraries and many organizations that work with young children and their families. We believe that these findings, along with the surveys and focus groups of parents of 0-3 year olds that will encompass Phase 4 of SPELL, will result in important considerations for organizations to reach low-income parents of very young children with an early literacy message. Check back for more findings!
