Fostering a love of learning through literacy is a key component of our Active Start Program. Children can choose from a variety of age appropriate books and cozy up with friends in the Literacy Centre for some shared reading. The Listening Library is a great place to follow along with their favorite stories. Our literacy centres also contain games and activities designed to encourage social interaction, as early literacy skills are developed. Caregivers encourage verbal expression by listening and responding positively to the children in their care.
