It’s a fact – children who are read to more frequently at an early age enter school with larger vocabularies and more advanced comprehension skills. Yet without access to books to stimulate learning in the home, or encouragement from a parent who is aware of its importance, disadvantaged children often don’t have the same shared reading time with their parents or carers as their more advantaged peers.
Alarmingly, most disadvantaged children are already well behind their peers by age four, and by age six, many are around seven times more likely than other children to be doing badly at school.
Fact is, providing early learning resources and support in the home is vital for a child’s future potential.
Let’s Read provides disadvantaged parents and carers with reading books and support to encourage them to have fun reading with their young children. The program also encourages children to develop a love of books and the ability to name letters and play with the sounds of words.
Our mentoring program works by matching students who need to improve their reading with peer buddies who help and encourage them with their reading. Peer support is central to the program’s success. Evidence indicates that one of the best ways to support students who have reading difficulties is for the help to come from others near their own age.
We offer books to children ages 5-12 this program is a reward based program to encourage children to read & learn.
Our Stem Based Learning Programs focuses on Science, Technology , Engineering & Math . We inspire creative thinking and out out of the box approach to reach children who may struggle in a traditional learning environment.
