Leap Ahead is an interactive reading program for families and children from the ages of 3 to 5 years old. Parents learn about and practice the Dialogic Reading Approach, which takes reading further and allows the child to play an active part of the reading process. Parents ask questions and prompt kids to become part of the text and elaborate on their cognitive skills. You will have the opportunity to experience just what a Dialogic Reading Program looks like and why is such an important part in teaching your Preschooler how to read. We also go over other aspects of Kindergarten readiness to help you prepare for your child's transition to school!
