Flower Cart Literacy Program

Flower Cart Literacy Program is an adult education program that VCLA operates in partnership with The Flower Cart Group. This program is designed for learners with intellectual disabilities, many of whom are taking part in Flower Cart employment readiness or community employment programs. Learners come to this program with a variety of learning goals. In some cases learners are working on very basic literacy while other learners may be considering the GED as a possible outcome. Life skills instruction and personal development upgrading are key ingredients of this program.

Typically beginning in October and running until the spring, the program features small classes organized around learners’ similar needs. Classes are usually 2 hours long and may take place at various times during the day and evening as dictated by learners’ work schedules. Classes take place at 49 Cornwallis Street in Kentville.
