Early Literacy Development
Teacher directed, independent and small-group activities such as reading at circle time, activities that support exploration, investigation, and discovery of letters and words.
Toddlers are taught to learn to recognize letters and numbers, to recite their ABCs, whilst Preschool children are taught to begin to learn to write their names, practice writing letters and read simple words.
Your child's ability to ask questions, to express their feelings and share their needs, both through spoken words and body language are very important to their ability to succeed socially and academically.
