Language & Literacy Development

Our curriculum also includes Alpha Friends a program in which children expand their English vocabulary and learn emergent literacy skills to help prepare them for kindergarten. To assist children in acquiring early literacy skills in a developmentally appropriate manner, students connect sound to symbol and symbol to sound, using sound movement as a physical anchor between the letter image, sound, and shape. We also participate in Raising a Reader, a literacy program which provides age-appropriate books for families to read to their children, promoting reading and positive parent-child interactions.
