5 simple ways to help your baby, toddler and preschoolers get school-ready!


Sharing books together every day is one of the most important things you can do with your child. It’s a fun way to spend time together - and your child will learn pre-reading skills.


Children learn language by listening to their parents and others talk. When you talk with your baby, toddler or preschooler, your child learns new words he or she will need in order to learn to read.


Children learn by playing. When you play with your child, you’ll have fun together while your child learns new words and builds imagination.


Encourage your child to scribble, draw and write. Using crayons and pencils develops motor skills they’ll need to make letters in school.


Songs are a fun way to learn about language. The alphabet song teaches letters, while rhyming songs help children hear the different sounds in words.
