Early Learning

Talk, Sing, Read, Write, Play

Encourage Literacy Skills

Research shows that ages 0-5 are the most important time for children to develop their brains & attitudes towards reading.

 

*Tip* Not every child will sit and listen to stories. Try reading aloud while they are playing nearby. They are still building early literacy skills as they sit nearby!
