Preschool Reading Curriculum

Your child embarks on their journey of letter recognition and understanding print when they start preschool. It’s during this period that they begin to establish the connection between letter sounds and word formation. Encouraging this inquisitiveness, coupled with reading to your child, can provide a strong foundation for their success. This effort is directed towards helping them eventually read independently. 

Our preschool reading curriculum introduces a variety of concepts. Here’s a glimpse at what your child can learn:   

  • Practicing letters and sounds   
  • Recognizing if word pairs rhyme 
  • Identifying missing letters in words 
  • Answering questions about a variety of fiction books
