Introducing the wonderful world of reading

Pre-K children eagerly soak up information about the world around them. (Don’t you just love watching your child’s eyes light up when his or her curiosity is sparked?) If you’ve noticed that books, new words and “once upon a times” are capturing your child’s imagination or you’d like to give your child an early boost in reading, it’s a great time to consider our pre-K reading program.


Bring words to life with pre-K reading activities

Children who take part in pre-K reading activities approach more formal reading exercises with confidence.

With our pre-K reading program, our tutors use a proven, multi–sensory approach to introduce your child to the wonderful world of stories, sounds and letters. Through a variety of reading activities, your child gets to see, hear, touch and move around — a truly engaging approach to learning to read. Along the way, our tutors motivate and inspire your soon-to-be-reader with supportive feedback and fun books (such as to Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Leo the Late Bloomer).

Pre-K reading skills your child will learn

In our pre-K reading program, your child will begin to learn the building blocks of reading:

  • Phonics
  • Phonemic awareness
  • Oral comprehension
  • Vocabulary


Is your child ready for pre-K reading?

Our pre-K reading program tends to be a great fit for kids who:

  • Are ages 4-1/2 to 5 years old
  • Can sit down and listen to a story from beginning to end
  • Show interest in letters of the alphabet and books
  • Can relate pictures in books to stories
  • Pretend to read by retelling a story

Reading tutoring by grade levels

We can help your child improve their reading skills from the very beginning. Starting in pre-K and moving through high school, our reading tutors can help students develop their literacy skills at any level.


What our parents and students are saying:

“Sylvan has been very supportive with my child’s needs and has greatly improved her grades and confidence.”
