During the early childhood years children are working to make sense of the print around them. They are also developing communication skills in a social context, while making connections across all areas of learning. Our classrooms create a forum where students are immersed in a language rich environment. Through picture books, read alouds, a listening center, room labels, writing, drawing and varied opportunities throughout the day, they continually practice expressive and receptive language skills. Using a developmental approach to instruction and learning, literacy experiences in PreK and Kindergarten are closely linked.
