Opening the Door to a Lifetime of Learning™
At the Hawkesbury Public Library we are excited about our new Early Literacy Stations (ELS). ELS is a computer workstation loaded with more than 45 educational software titles for kids ages 2 - 10. ELS offers children a safe, standalone computer not connected to the internet that is age appropriate, engaging, and academically relevant for children.
We have two stations at the Library and it’s an imaginative interface that encourages exploration. The stations have a colourful keyboard, a tiny mouse, and a touch screen to promote easy learning and discovery.
Many of the programs contain disguised learning activities that expand the child's experience through games and extension activities. The programs help develop skills in mathematics & problem solving, science & nature, social studies & geography, writing computer skills, reading, word recognition, phonics, reference, and music & art. Your child will enjoy playing educational games and did we mention that the ELS is fun? Once again children just love it and welcome to all!
