Early Years

Literacy is not just about reading, it’s about ending poverty and inequality.

UNICEF reports that “Early Childhood Development is seen as one of the most cost-efficient investments in human capital which leads to a country’s sustainable development.” Conversely, the “cost of inaction” — of neglecting the early learning and development for our youngest learners — burdens society in a myriad of ways.

Early reading interventions have regularly proven cost effective

Early literacy is the foundation for a successful education and a fulfilling life. Developing strong literacy skills in the early years has numerous benefits that can positively impact individuals and communities.
