The Importance of Building Reading Skills in the Early Years
A sound reading routine helps ensure not just a strong language foundation but also fosters cognitive development in children. Reading plays an important role in later success in life. The sooner a child is introduced to books the more likely it is for him/her to grow fond of books and reading.
English is one of the largest languages spoken in the world. Most instructions provided in the real world and even in school exams are in English. However, according to ACER 2018 Report, about 50% of standard 5 children cannot even read standard 2 books.
How Do We Build Reading Skills?
We use quality content created and vetted by early years educators. Each program curriculum has been developed keeping the reading level of the child in mind. We have divided our reading program into 5 levels. We use engaging stories, music, fun activity, games and practice reading with guided reading, shared reading and read-aloud to build reading and comprehension skills in your child.

Parents Love Our Program
My son has learnt to comprehend as well as form his own narrative thanks to the stories in the class. Each session is unique and has highly engaging activities.
Like a genie, they made the kids learn the spellings with such amazing tricks, patterns & rules that I had no clue ever existed.
I enrolled my son so that he could do better at his Spell Bee competition, but was amazed to see how it just went beyond spellings and build my son’s interest in reading and writing as well.
This program flows smoothly and kids tend to pick and retain very well. My son was not reading at all before this, it was only me reading out to him but during this program he began to read and enjoy it too.
I think this is a fantastic venture with huge benefits for children. Your idea for engaging children in and through storytelling are utterly captivating and imaginative.
