“A very inspiring and important course, delivered with a clear passion for the future of children (and adults). Really looking forward to the next one!” EY Practitioner, Kings Square Nursery, September 2016
A tried and tested effective early literacy programme that will improve the reading of all 2- to 7 -year-olds – an ideal way for using the Early Years Pupil Premium and supporting those from disadvantaged backgrounds. It has been implemented in Primary and Infant schools for any children needing a daily one-to-one reading experience to develop the LOVE of reading. At it’s core is the programme’s unique emphasis on the development of an emotional attachment with reading and learning; it is this daily one-to-one reading experience between a child and an expert practitioner that has been proven to make the difference.

Readit2 helps children develop an emotional bond with reading and learning before children start school and continues when they are at school. Through a daily one-to-one reading experience, it aims to support children who may have experienced adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). By the same adult reading to the child each day, the child learns to trust. As Oprah Winfrey says ‘all humans need to know that they matter’.
