Our Reading Program
Our reading assistant reads one-on-one with our emergent readers and younger children to promote confidence and accuracy in reading. Children receive a new reading book from our library every week so they can practice reading at home with their parents.
The children achieve such impressive results in our short classroom time, and parents can help significantly by working with their children at home as well. Homework is set on a regular basis, usually in the form of reading, practising for spelling tests or extra practise of work done in class. Children will assimilate new information much faster through repetition and practise at home.
