New! Online Reading Program

Given the recent progression of the COVID-19 outbreak, the LDANR Team has made the very difficult decision to cancel all in-person spring programming. It has been determined that minimizing face-to-face interaction between our program participants, caregivers, and staff would be best at this time. 

The LDANR Team have been working diligently to come up with creative solutions to continue to provide services to our program families during this challenging time. With that being noted, we are excited to announce that we will be offering online reading support throughout the spring program season. Beginning in May, LDANR will be piloting a season of online literacy tutoring services for children in grades 2-8 (see information below), as well as launching a series of webinars to support the development of math, reading, and coping skills at home.

It is important to note that this will be the first time that LDANR will offer services in the online format. For this reason, we kindly ask for your patience and understanding while we navigate this new programming approach. While we recognize that in-person services are preferred and proven to be most effective, we are working to provide services that can continue to promote growth and learning during these unprecedented times.
