The Joshua Tree Preschool Literacy Lounge is open. This free early reading education for preschool aged children is made possible by Joshua Tree Recreation and Parks District in partnership with First 5 of San Bernardino County. Joshua Tree Recreation received a grant to make available a Preschool Literacy Lounge as an avenue to achieving early reading skills for first readers. The Lounge combines students, parents, teachers, and technology to develop and build reading skills as required for success at higher levels of education. Teachers of the Joshua Tree Preschool will host open reading sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 4 p.m. and tutor in the use of iPads available at the lounge to develop reading skills in pupils.
