The Family Literacy Program addresses the need for FREE GED and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes for adults while simultaneously providing a play and learn group for their children. Components of the program include adult education classes (GED & ESOL), Play and Learn literacy based playgroup for children, weekly parenting education programs, and weekly parent and child together activities. The program is a partnership with the New Britain YWCA and New Britain Adult Education.

To enroll one must be a mother with at least one child under age 8 and be a resident of New Britain. Classes are held at the YWCA, with limited space for FREE child care for ages 6 months-2 years. Classes are 3 days a week between Monday and Thursday and meet from 9:00AM-2:00PM (schedule varies by day).

To register or for more information call Amina at 860-229-7323, or email

We are always looking for volunteers to assist in our Play & Learn Child Care Program, 1 day per week, 3-5 hours.
