Preschool Early Literacy (PEL)

The PEL program aims at helping kindergarteners become school-ready through the

  • acquisition of language skills (listening and speaking)
  • development of literacy skills (reading and spelling)
  • enhancement of self-esteem, confidence and motivation
  • sharpening of visual & auditory processing, attention, concentration and memory skills

The program incorporates the OG principles (Orton Gillingham) in its instructional approach, one that is structured, multi-sensory, cumulative, and emotionally-sound.

PEL is taught by educational therapists trained to teach preschool children with literacy challenges.  The lessons are child-centered, developmentally appropriate, and prescriptive in nature.  Thus, the specialist teacher will teach as fast as she can and as slow as she must, in a fun and engaging way.

Literacy intervention for pre-schoolers

Our early literacy program aims at developing pre-literacy skills such as alphabet knowledge, phonological awareness, story-telling, listening skills, letter recognition, and writing letters. Research suggest that these skills are the strongest and most consistent predictors of later success in reading.  Our program aims at strengthening these skills to ensure a strong foundation on which advanced literacy skills are built.
