Literacy starts when parents read to their children. Reading with children prepares them for pre-school and kindergarten and ensures they’re set up for success in school and beyond.
This full year program enables two parents to attend regular reading and story sessions with their two pre-school aged children, helping them engage their children in reading early on. Building literacy skills early helps children build confidence to continue learning in the future.
