I have the privilege of working at Centerville Library, a small yet very busy and culturally diverse library in northern Fremont. Many of our customers are new immigrants who are still learning English. We understand that sometimes services are better delivered in the language the customers are more familiar with. As a start, we will be offering a new program for Mandarin-speaking families. Besides the popular bilingual storytime, and the 0-5 parenting workshop offered during the storytime session (many thanks to the Infant and Toddler Program, City of Fremont, for the continuing support), we now have a parenting class that will meet regularly at Centerville Library. The October class is scheduled on October 2nd at 12:30 – 2:00 pm. This new parenting class is led by Dr. Shu-Ling Chen. Dr. Chen has a Ph.D in early childhood and parenting education. She has been giving seminars and a leader of parenting groups in the Bay Area for 17 years. Dr. Chen is also the author of a well-known Chinese parenting book.

Since the program is conducted in Mandarin, information on the class below is written in Chinese.

Dr. ShuLing Chen 陳姝伶博士 簡介:
陳姝伶博士畢業於台大社會系,社會研究所。畢業後曾任職內政部及台北護專。赴美後,於University of Oregon的幼兒教育系進修,專攻幼兒認知發展及親職教育,取得幼教碩士及博士學位。陳姝伶女士在取得博士學位後,於1991年11月成立親子樂園,至 今已十多餘年,藉著定期聚會,讓住在大聖荷西地區的父母們有一個共同學習成長以及分享經驗的機會。陳博士不但在親子樂園中與父母們分享幼教專業,也經常在灣區的中文學校和社團中演講。陳姝伶博士並與陳怡菁女士合著有”教出這樣的好孩子: 幼教博士陳姝伶的媽媽經”一書

Centerville Library 非常幸運地獲得陳博士的首肯,自十月份起在北本館成立父母成長班,希望能服務有需要的華人家長。這樣的機會真的很難得,座位有限,請趕快報名喔 ! 詳情請看 這裡
