BROOKLYN, New York, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network (HITN TV), as part of its commitment to promote bilingual educational content, is sponsoring “Family Preschool Night,” an event to be held at the Newark Museum on June 10 from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
“Growing numbers of Hispanic families are eager to ensure that their children become fluent in Spanish as well as English,” commented Ed Greene, Vice President, Partnerships and Community Development for HITN. “By participating in this type of event we are helping create awareness in the Hispanic community that bilingualism is an advantage in early childhood education.”
The event is being co-organized by the Newark Museum and the Office of Early Childhood Education at Newark Public Schools to provide families with information on resources and programs that support children and families citywide.
HITN-TV will set up a space in the museum for ‘Family Preschool Night’ offering coloring pages, bilingual children’s books and activities inspired by CBeebies characters. Through its partnership with Highlights for Children, HITN will be presenting bilingual materials including complementary copies of Bilingual High Five, and have a walk-around with Cbeebies character RolyMo.
Last year, more than 900 families attended the event, which is sponsored by the Newark Public Schools and the Nicholson Foundation. Other sponsors include United Way, WNET and New Jersey Public Television.
The event will also feature guided tours to various museum exhibits and educational activities for kids in the Ancient Egypt and American Art halls. In addition, the Dynamic Earth and recently installed MakerSPACE exhibit will feature fun activities and creative explorations to stimulate learning among young visitors.
