Enriching Lives


Studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance and how well your child reads may determine how well your child does well at school.


What difference can I make as a parent?


You can make a huge difference!


Parents are the most important educators in a child’s life – even more important than their teachers – and it’s never too early to start reading together.


Even before they're born, babies learn to recognise their parents' voices. Reading to your baby from birth, even for just a few minutes a day, gives them the comfort of hearing your voice and increases their exposure to language.


The following information may be helpful in supporting your child at home, but please do not hesitate to ask us for guidance or advice.
