At St Peter’s Girls’ ELC, literacy is embedded in all that we do. We understand active play is the vehicle that helps young children’s brains build early communication skills, which mature and develop into formal reading and writing skills later in their schooling years.

Book-making is just one technique we have been using, allowing children to express their thoughts in a creative and fun way. It empowers the children to feel they are competent storytellers and writers, even if they are yet to master the skill of letter formation.

Watch our video to see how we’re developing a love of literacy at ELC.
