Becoming a reader in 75 days

Learn the core strategies for supporting your child in becoming a reader. Our new course Becoming a Reader in 75 Days, is designed for parents and caregivers of children aged 4 to 6 who want to learn how to strengthen their child’s reading skills. As the child’s first teachers, they build the foundation for language and literacy skills from the moment a child is born.  

The first stage of ‘becoming a reader’ usually begins in kindergarten or grade 1. This is when children begin to learn the relationships between letters and sounds, how sounds are put together to form words, and how words can be used to form sentences. The skills acquired during this period are the foundation for becoming a skilled reader. Parents and caregivers can enable their child to become a confident reader when they know the best sequence for teaching foundational skills and have a repertoire of fun and engaging activities they can use to teach their child.
