Message from Heather Knight

Dear Parents,

Thank you to those that joined me Thursday morning for the Reading Development in the Early Years parent coffee. I hope you walked away with a better understanding of reading development and our program, as well as some useful ways to help your young reader. A great additional resource is the Nightly Reading homework: Best Practice for Parents video. You can access this by clicking here. (Please note you will need a VPN.)

Your child’s teacher is always the best source of information specific to your child’s individual progress. I am always happy to speak to you regarding child development and literacy. If you are looking for further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind Regards,

Heather Knight
