Infants, toddlers and preschoolers develop oral language and pre-literacy skills everyday that will help them become readers. It's an exciting and critical time of learning! Parents, teacher and childcare providers can find additional information about our youngest learners in the sections on Preschool and Childcare, Oral Language, Print Awareness, Phonemic Awareness, and in the section especially for preschool teachers.
