Before knowing how to speak, a young child is already COMMUNICATING with the world. A baby knows to cry for a parent’s attention: that raising arms up asks “pick me up”. Before a child learns to read and write, the path to literacy has already begun; playing with books, scribbling on paper, tracing letters on an e-tablet, are all steps of emergent literacy.
The Discovery Center’s LICENSED LEAD TEACHERS provide access to rich language and literacy environments in their classrooms. Children’s emergent language and literacy development is boosted by the many activities and experiences integrated into the class day, supporting FUTURE ACADEMIC SUCCESS.
