AVANCE Featured On Telemundo

Austin, TX (July 2013) — AVANCE-Austin early childhood educator Angelica Brandt appeared on the local Telemundo station  to discuss the Parent-Child Education Program and its work in the  Latino community. The program offers predominantly low-income, Spanish-speaking families with young children (ages 0-3) the opportunity to increase their parenting skills while children attend a separate class to prepare them for success in kindergarten.  The overall goal of AVANCE is to close the academic achievement gap between Latino students and their peers by teaching parent that they are a child’s first teachers and the home is the first classroom.

AVANCE is currently enrolling for the 2013-2014 program year.  Classes are four hours long, and meet one morning each week at the program site nearest to the family’s home. The program is entirely free and transportation is available for those who do not have access to a car.
