Early Readers Preschool Curriculum

Early Readers Preschool provides a language-rich environment for your student. What does that mean? It means we are going to converse, sing, and read together. How will conversing, singing, and reading help your child?

Early learners who grow up in environments where they can experience and develop language and reading skills don’t just do better in academic subjects like reading, English, and history. They are stronger in all academic areas

Reading

Early learners are more confident in themselves when learning to read in kindergarten because they have experience with books from their parents and other adults in their life. Books seem less scary and are special.

Math

Early learners are confident when learning how to count, add, subtract, and understand graphs in kindergarten when they have experiences from their parents and other grownups in their life.
