The Exploring Literacies Initiative is led by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. The early childhood literacy strategy is meant to reach everyone who interacts with children every day including: early childhood educators, early childhood services and programs like Talk with Me, Libraries, Family Resource Centres, Family and Early Childhood Agencies and most importantly – parents who are children’s first and most important teacher.
This pamphlet provides a variety of tips that promote literacy through daily learning and playing that can easily be incorporated into the daily life of busy families.
In addition to this pamphlet there are other tools and resources available in each Anglophone School District that promote early childhood literacy. These include: Exploring Literacies professional learning opportunities for educators and early childhood service providers, a seven hour online literacy module.
