Early Literacy Tips from the Department of Education and Office of Early Learning
What is Early Literacy?
Early language and literacy (reading and writing) development begins in the first years of life and is closely connected to a child's earliest experience with books and stories. You are your child's first teacher, there are connections (and meaning) between an infant mouthing a book, the book handling behavior of a two year old, and the page turning of a five year old. Looking ahead, the first three years of exploring and playing with books, singing nursery rhymes, listening to stories, recognizing words, and scribbling are truly the building blocks for language and literacy development.
Listed below are tips for talking, signing, reading,
writing and playing with your child at home and
on the go to promote early learning.
