We are excited to announcing that the Oak Hill Adult & Community Education program will be offering a FREE Literacy Opportunity in our community! StoryTime Adventure Hour’s will be targeting children at the 2-4yr old age range, not yet enrolled into the district preschool program.

During these StoryTime Adventure Hours, an Adult Education Instructor will be providing family literacy techniques to use in your own home and daily routines, reading a special themed story each month and reiterating comprehension with a hands-on activity for each child! Each child leaves with a copy of the book used during StoryTime Adventure Hour!

We held our first StoryTime Adventure Hour at Sabattus Primary School on Monday, September 11th at 830a. We filled our first class with 10 children and one or two of their parents! It was fantastic to see such excitement in these children’s eyes. Hearing parents speak about the convenience and importance of family literacy in their own community was exhilarating!

Registration is required so that we can prepare accordingly. There is a minimum # required, of 4 hold the class and a maximum of 10 for each class. Registration is online at or by phone: #207.375.6605. Pre-Registration allows us to plan accordingly with books and materials.
