Emergent literacy in Lakeside Family Services
Emergent literacy is critical to ensure that children are well equipped, especially before they enter the formal education system. The team developed take-home interactive toolkits to increase enjoyment and learning through reading at home for children aged 5-6. These toolkits received positive feedback, with the children, their parents and staff from Lakeside Family Services agreeing that it was enjoyable and effective. These toolkits were also simple and replicable, thus reducing the time and effort LFS will need to replicate our toolkits for use in the long run.
