Early Literacy

Early Literacy


Information for parents and caregivers of babies, toddlers & pre-schoolers


Parents and Caregivers,

Early literacy begins with you. You are the key to your child's success in learning to read. Early literacy is not the teaching of reading.  It is everything a child knows about reading and writing BEFORE he or she knows how to read and write.

Help your child get ready to read with simple activities every day.  Talk, sing, read, write and play every day to develop your child’s early literacy skills.  Focus on the fun you are having.
