We focus on the components of literacy to foster early literacy learning.
• Alphabet Knowledge – Teachers help children to learn the 52 letters of the alphabet (upper and lower case), and make letter-sound connections. Teachers also help children connect spoken and written words.
• Literacy for Enjoyment – Teachers encourage children to find enjoyment in literacy, daily.
• Vocabulary and Language – Teachers promote vocabulary and language through literacy. Children with strong vocabularies are more likely to become strong readers.
• Comprehension – Teachers support the process of making meaning of our language through literacy.
We help children to understand print concepts and encourage children to write for a variety of purposes. Teachers plan for literacy across all learning centers.
