Children begin to discover reading from a very early age, through the signs, names, and logos in the world around them. This means that a lot of the time children are entering an early years setting with an already extensive exposure to reading. Because of this, it is vital that early years practitioners know how to develop this skill.

This course will help practitioners to build an environment in which reading can thrive and succeed and will look at the benefits and methods of developing reading and literacy.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To understand how literacy and reading is vital to a child's development
  2. To know of practical methods of enhancing reading skills
  3. To be able to create an environment that helps reading thrive
  4. To understand that reading must be integral to every aspect of a young child's education experience

This course ensures your practice is in line with the requirements of the Childcare Act 2006 (the Act), as amended by the Children and Families Act 2014. It will also support your continuous professional development and enable you to keep well informed and up-to-date with current practice.
