Here are some Questions answered for you:
1. What is special about this program?
“PreLit is an early literacy preparation program, designed to be delivered the year before children start formal schooling.” “It is designed to prevent young children experiencing reading difficulties in the first place, by providing preschool children with a thorough grounding in the essential pre-literacy skills that they will need when they begin formal schooling”.
2. How will it benefit your child?
“The children will commence school with both phonological awareness and well-developed general language skills are far more likely to learn to read easily and quickly”.
3. Who has developed the program?
The program was devised by Macquarie University. It represents a “truly scientific evidence-based best practice and is predicated on contemporary research”. We are confident knowing that the Program “is a thorough grounding in the essential pre-literacy skills that children will need when they begin formal schooling”.
4. Why have you decided to change to Prelit Program?
Some primary schools use the Multi Lit Program with their students. After personally having seen the positive outcome of the PreLit program, we would like to offer the children at our Centre the same the opportunity to “equip” the children through the implementation of the PreLit program. Thus ensuring the “basic building blocks of literacy are in place for children when they begin formal schooling”.
