Our Reading Program is designed to instil a lifelong love for reading in our children. Reading is a fun activity to learn and socialise. Our program is full of activities centred around reading that is aimed to promote early literacy skills, including alphabet recognition, phonics, and comprehension.
We have a library at all our centres and all of them are filled with well-loved children’s story books and award winning children’s literature which provides children with many opportunities to increase their language and communication skills.
With a love of reading their vocabulary and appreciation for the written word will grow as they read and listen to a wide range of educational story books from our libraries. We want our children to transition to school with confidence by engaging with them in a wide variety of experiences.
Amongst our children we want to lay down the foundation for the love of learning and the ability to develop skills in a positive, safe and fun environment.
