LENA Start


LENA Start helps parents of infants and toddlers up to 32 months old close
the talk gap to build their babies' brains and prepare them for school.

LENA Start classes provide patrons with FREE 1-hour group sessions, all of the course materials, and classes in Spanish or English.

Parents will be provided our pedometer-like LENA devices to track numbers of words and conversational exchanges with your child in order to track the parent's progress. Parents will receive weekly reports to let them know how they are doing as they go through this 10-week program.

Speak with Library Staff at either the Chavez, Manteca, Troke or Tracy Branches to sign up with your child before the start dates.
