Created by early reading experts, Reading Fairy classes for babies, toddlers and pre-school children lay the foundation for learning to read and loving books for life.
We believe in learning through play and our action-packed classes across the UK and online include: fun phonics and word games; sensory and performance storytelling; interactive songs and nursery rhymes; speaking and listening activities; picture book time and more!
Evidence shows that phonics is key to a child’s successful reading journey and plays a central role in our Reading Fairy classes. But it is only one factor. Other critical reading skills needed alongside phonics include: rich language experiences, a wide vocabulary, comprehension (reading for meaning), sharing books and enjoying a range of fiction, nonfiction and poetry books.
Children who enjoy reading for pleasure are more likely to do well academically in all subjects (including Maths!), have a wide vocabulary to express themselves clearly, be more accepting of other people and cultures and gain an improved sense of well-being. Reading Fairy classes attend to all aspects of early reading through our unique pre-school programme.
Each Reading Fairy stage has been written using the latest research and best early years practice. Reading Fairy’s gentle progression grows with your child as they build core literacy skills and nurture a love of reading.
Stage 1: Books Babies (from 12 months) encourage early language and literacy
Stage 2: Toddler Tales (from 18 months) active literacy with sounds and talk
Stage 3: Story Stars (from 24 months) explores first phonics for early reading fun
Stage 4: Reading Recruits (for 3-5 years) prepares your child for learning to read confidently at school
For the last few months, we have continued to provide our parents with @Home online sessions which will be continuing in some areas along with our face to face classes as we return to venues across the country. It will be the Reading Fairy you love and remember with a few changes to keep you all safe.
