Birth To Five

What is early literacy?

Early literacy is what children know about reading and writing long before they can actually read and write.

Can't I just wait until my child
starts school?

Don't wait. Shared early literacy experiences will be very rewarding for both of you and will help prepare your child for later reading and writing success.

How do I create these early
literacy experiences?

Do this by TALKING, READING, WRITING, SINGING and PLAYING with your child. These activities will help build essential literacy skills.
