The idea of "paying it forward" is more than just a few sensitive words.  It should mean that we take responsibility for the next generation. The Early Literacy Program, is a socio-economically and culturally diverse independent school for children, toddlers through grade six, strives to graduate students who are joyful, resilient, life-long learners. The program embraces a philosophy of education that combines a nurturing, inclusive learning environment with an increasingly challenging academic program that addresses the developmental needs of each child.

Today a variety of terms are used to refer to the preschool phase of literacy development—emerging literacy, emergent reading, emergent writing, early reading, symbolic tools, and so on.  

But new research with low-income children by psychologists suggests it takes more than nightly reading to foster a child's future reading success. Parents, teachers and others who read to children must also engage young children with lively, enthusiastic recitations that bring characters and plots to life, and pose open-ended questions that spark children's comprehension, vocabulary and interest.

All children deserve to experience both the joy of reading and the skills in life that literacy brings. We are passionately committed to strengthening children’s literacy through early childhood education and community advocacy. In order to meet our mission and provide services in our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support.
