  • A child’s development during childhood, includes building skills such
    as pre-reading, language, vocabulary, and numeracy, begins from when
    child is born.
  • There is a strong relationship between child's early life and their
    larer life.For example, infants who are good at building blocks of
    speech at 6 months are better at complex language skills at 2 and 3
    years of age.Also better at acquiring the power of understanding to
    read or write when they grow elder.
  • When children are provided better rich language and listening they can begin to acquire the essential building blocks for learning how to
    read. A child who enters school without these skills can have a very
    significant risk.
