Ages & Stages of Reading (Birth to 5 years)

Posted: August 1, 2019

Reading with your child is one of the best ways to encourage language development.  Parents are encouraged to read to their child daily right from birth for at least 15 minutes a day.  This does not have to be 15 consecutive minutes but can be broken up into smaller chunks of time throughout the day.  Snuggle up with your little one and follow their lead.  Read the books they love, even if it mean reading the same book over and over again!  Young children thrive off of repetition.  Check out the attached document to learn more about the ages and stages of reading.
