Strong Beginnings = Strong Brains

Welcome to the Early Literacy Resource Guide!

Early literacy is what children know about reading and writing before they can actually read and write.

Did you know by the time a child is 5 years old their brain is about 90% of its adult size?

This means that some of the most important brain development of our lives is happening from the moment we are born! 

It also means that we are learning from birth. 

What if there were 5 simple things you could do with your child everyday, from birth, to help them be better prepared to read and write? 

The good news is: There are, and you already have what it takes to do them all.

Visit Talk, Sing, Read, Write, Play to learn more!
