Reading Excellence - Support your child's learning journey
Supporting your child's learning journey
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle
Research suggests that time spent reading for pleasure could be a key indicator for the future success of a child – even more important than their family's socio-economic status.
As a parent, how can you support your child to develop a love of reading?
A love for reading can be hugely valuable for children. The benefits of leisure reading include increased general knowledge, a positive impact on academic achievement, enhanced reading ability and vocabulary growth.
In this workshop, we will help parents develop knowledge, understanding and strategies to build a culture of reading excellence in the home.
