Message from Ms. 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

ECE Vice Principal
