Early Literacy Tools

What is Early Literacy?
Early literacy is what children know about reading and writing before they can actually read and write.

Why is Early Literacy Important For My Child?
Studies show that children are ready to read years before they start school. Helping your baby or toddler learn literacy skills now will help ensure success in school.Parents who engage their children in language activities such as reading, finger plays, nursery rhymes, singing songs and library story times are educating and stimulating their children’s imaginations. They are modeling that reading and spending time together are of great importance.
