PACT Time

P.A.C.T. stands for Parent And Child Together Time. Sometimes also called Interactive Literacy Activities.

  • This is a time for parents and children to build literacy skills and interact together in the early childhood classrooms.
  • They are regularly scheduled sessions
  • Valuable one-on-one time where the children's interest and preferences drive the activities, with parents following their lead.
  • Staff members help parents learn how to support their children's learning through interaction with each other in meaningful activities, including play.
  • Reciprocal learning that takes place during this time offers parents and children a chance to become true partners in education.
  • Common PACT Time activities include parents and children reading, playing or creating projects together.
