brothers reading together

Have you ever wondered why nursery rhymes like Pat-a-Cake, Humpty Dumpty or Itsy Bitsy Spider have endured for generations?

Did you know that by talking with your child you increase the number of connections between neurons in her brain?

Did you know that everyday sensory experiences like bath time, a trip to the park or a walk around the park are valuable moments for enhancing your child’s word and world knowledge (otherwise known as vocabulary)?

Come to our parent workshops and learn about the six early literacy skills that children need to develop before they learn how to read. Learn how to choose the best books for your child’s developmental stage and leave with great ideas for fun activities and booklists!
