Norwich preschools receive literary residency program

March 12, 2021
Staff Report
   
The Connecticut Storytelling Center announced foundational support for its work to promote literacy in area preschools through a literary residency program.  

The Charter Oak Credit Union and the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut are supporting the center’s Littlest Listeners program in Norwich. In this residency program, CSC’s teaching artists make repeat visits to the classroom, utilizing the arts as a tool to improve listening, speaking and visualizing skills, the first three components of literacy. Storytellers have transitioned to live, virtual programs for this school year, and the response has been positive. 

The Connecticut Storytelling Center is also gearing up for its 40th annual, and first full-virtual festival in April, featuring nationally acclaimed storyteller Geraldine Buckley. Visit connstorycenter.org/festival.htm.
