Educational Reasons

Reading opens the door to your child's early academic success, imparts a love of learning and leads to higher grades in every subject. Numerous studies have shown that strong oral language skills are the basis for literacy development. When children learn to read at an early age, they have greater general knowledge, expand their vocabulary and become more fluent readers.

They also have improved attention spans & better concentration.

Psychological Reasons

A child who learns to read joyfully at home or in an individualised environment, at an early age, grows in self-confidence & independence. Reading promotes greater maturity, increases discipline and lays the basis for moral literacy. It sparks curiosity about people, places and things and also satisfies the child's curiosity by providing explanations of how things work. It exposes the child to a range of problem-solving techniques. In addition, early reading ignites the child's creativity & imagination.

Neurological Reasons

Reading helps to develop a young child's brain. In the first six years, children learn at a much faster pace than at any other time in their lives. Vital connections in the brain are made very early in life. When a child is taught to read, the process of learning has a profound influence on the entire functioning & development of the brain. You can play a critical role by helping your children master early reading skills, but more importantly, instilling a love of reading and learning.

Social Reasons

Even at a young age, children have social awareness. They know who is more popular. They can tell who can do what. In some schools they may even be asked to help other children, who may still be struggling with basic letter recognition.
Early readers have the opportunity to relate to their peers on a more
confident, competent level as reading improves self-confidence resulting in
better self-image as well.

Linguistic Reasons

Children who can read independently and early have more opportunities to encounter
the written word. The sooner children learn how to read, the more books, knowledge, and ideas they will be exposed to. The result? Improved linguistic skills in the form of a richer vocabulary, correct grammar, improved writing, better spelling and more articulate oral communication. Such children have the opportunity to develop a wider vocabulary to describe their knowledge, observations and experiences.
