We offer programs to suit your child’s needs

Sound Enrichment

Every reader begins with sounding out letters. This program specifically geared to enhance child’s knowledge of beginning sounds and letter recognition. Letter sounds retention will be reinforced through manipulation of concrete materials and stimulating group activities that your child will truly enjoy!

Word Builder

For your child who has an ample knowledge of all the sounds and can put sounds of letters together, we will build words together starting with short vowel words. We will combine short vowel and consonant sounds to make word families. This stage will prepare your child to be an emergent reader.

Emergent Reader

For the beginning reader who wants to gain confidence in reading short vowel words in a sentence. Your child will do activities to learn sight words, reconstruct mixed up sentences and read words with blends and digraphs.

Confident Reader

This program is for children who can read confidently and is ready to take on the challenge of extending the written text into a new concept. With opportunities to read in front a group, we may re-enact some story lines, do puppet shows,  and answer reading comprehension questions.
