All about Early Literacy

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 and let the teachers take care of this?

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?

TALK, READ, WRITE, SING and PLAY with your child. These activities will help build essential early literacy skills.
