Literacy: Reading and Writing

Literacy: Reading and Writing

Reading is an important component of your child’s overall development, and it begins well before your child goes to school. In fact, you are your child’s first and most important teacher! Early experiences that help children learn to talk and sign, engage with books, and draw and color support their path to literacy (reading and writing). Children who have a strong foundation in early literacy skills are set up for success in school and life.
