Going Beyond the Basics of Reading
Introducing Your Child's Stellar Vocabulary
and Next-Level Comprehension
Early Literacy | Serving Lake Worth, Miami Lakes & West Palm Beach, FL
During the first years of life your child is developing at an exponential rate, and depends on caring and responsive adults to support their growth. Studies show that when children are read to, they develop improved language skills and increased interest in learning later on. We love to read to your child daily and guide them to appreciate books later on.
Getting Your Child
Ready For Reading
By third grade, children will be expected to read fluently and confidently. They’ll need to navigate word math problems, fiction, historical texts, and reference books for research. Our focus on early literacy comprehension will give them the right scaffolding to get there, which is why we focus on pre-literacy and reading from very early on.
The Power of Stories
Books and stories take children to places and times they’ve never been–exposing them to new concepts, circumstances, and people. Reading lets them see through the eyes of others, opening them up to new feelings and perspectives. Reading is an essential way children can investigate their emotions and develop empathy.
Daily Reading Improves
Grammar and Spelling
When children see and hear the words in a story, they’re given examples of proper structure and use of language that they’ll fold and mimic into their language. Through daily reading and repetition, we continuously expose your child to the basics rules of grammar and writing.
Reading to Relax the
Mind and Body
Studies have shown that reading lowers heart rates and relieves stress, benefiting overall physical health. Plus, it lets children take a break from the ordinary and stimulates the imagination. We partake in reading to your child as an individual and in a group, to make this wind-down time an integral part of their day-to-day
Attention Spans, Focus,
Stories are compelling, and children have to sit still and quietly so they can focus on them whether they’re reading or being read to regularly. As a result, regular reading increases attention spans, focus, and concentration.
Thanks to Storytelling
Reading is more than identifying words on a page. It’s the active process of constructing meaning. We encourage this process and ask your child questions as they reflect on ideas in a story. We also make predictions about what might happen next and reflect on what information we used to make those predictions, which augments your child’s critical thinking skills.
Reading is Transformative,
Fascinating, and Fun
How else can you fly on a dragon’s back across a desert sky or float through space to touch Neptune? Reading is a ticket to another world, and getting lost in a book is unique and magical happiness. We are proud to offer your child this enjoyable experience every day and to encourage them to continue the journey of reading.
