Learning to Read Program for Caregivers of Early Years Children

Providing the fundamental tools and understanding to positively assist a child in the first steps of their reading journey – developed for parents, nannies and childminders.

Do you know what a story stack is? How does an “e” sound in phonics? Why does my child have “tricky words”? The learning process happens in all aspects of a child’s life, not simply the classroom and homework book. Developing a love of reading is essential in a child’s early years. The Learning to Read Program covers everything you need to help you and your child enjoy the learning to read experience. “Providing your child with support and patience, giving them a head start with reading in their first years of school are so important to having a positive learning experience.” – Adeline Tye, Learn to Read Educator
