St. Luke Learning Stories

We love sharing all the learning that is taking place in our programs. Every program at our centre shares a new story each month, so be sure to check back often! You can also email and print each story to share with friends and family. 

Early literacy in preschool is something as educators we value and we see the children taking great interest in. Our classroom is set up to allow the children to develop letter recognition, letter sounds, sight words and expanding their vocabulary throughout their play. The children love to read with an educator, both in large and small group settings. We discuss the story, what we see in the photos and the children ask many questions. This is another great opportunity for us as educators to bring literacy into the classroom and for the children to have the opportunity to share their thoughts and personal experiences. The children have a few favorite books that are read repeatedly.
