Did you know 1 in 5 children starting school don’t have the skills to learn properly?

Literacy is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children.

At Ready to Read, we nurture this gift through our early children literacy programs. We position children for literacy success before they start school.

Extending beyond school readiness, Ready to Read teaches children the fundamentals of reading, writing and spelling in order to build a strong foundation of literacy.

Ready to Read Community Literacy Program is excited to launch in the Sutherland Shire Region.
