Early Literacy & Early Numeracy

The development of Early Literacy and Numeracy begins at birth. Families and caregivers start children on the road by interacting with children and talking about the world around them. A rich play environment encourages the development of literacy and numeracy skills. It is important for caregivers and teachers to focus not only on how we talk to children and read to them, but also having in-depth discussions about what is read and the mathematical relationships in the world around them.
