The very first Early Childhood Literacy and Language Arts scheme for the Caribbean •

Tested and developed by a team of Early Childhood experts and Caribbean specialists, this Pack integrates key foundational learning through familiar Caribbean-specific contexts and themes suggested by the early childhood curricula of the Caribbean.

Each component is an activity-rich and versatile resource that progressively builds on the key skills needed for effective literacy and language arts development, whilst allowing children to develop at their own pace through games, role play, songs, action rhymes and other stimulus that they can relate to.

The Teacher's Guide and accompanying photocopiable sheet of ideas for parents ensure educators are well supported with this less formal teaching approach.

Contact your local representative to discuss how this Pack could help your young learners to take their first literacy steps.
