Language & Literacy

Language & Literacy


Language & Literacy is very important in a child’s starting years as what they develop now will affect their future performance. We teach various languages such as tagalog, english and chinese to our students. There is story time, phonics, and eventually reading and writing depending on both grade level and individual performance. We always want to teach our children how to have FUN and this way they will love learning about Language & Literacy!
