Udemy – 5 steps to reading: baby, toddler, preschooler, pre-k. [100% off]
The first five years matter and last a lifetime. The development of our brain determines who we become and how we behave. By the time a child is three years old, 90% of their brain has developed, and it is now understood that early experiences have a greater influence on development than heredity. Not only that, the literacy skills of a child at age 4 to 5 are a good indication of academic success in primary or elementary school.
This course contains the “Read Before School” reading program – a proven phonics program that has been design to help parents teach their 0 to 6 years olds, to Learn to Read. In this course I provide the tools and knowledge to help you implement fun and creative learning in your home environment, helping you to unlock your infant, toddler or pre-k / preschooler’s potential in a number of areas.
I designed this course for my own children, who were able both able to read before they started school. One was reading chapter books independently at age 3, the other was reading simple texts at age 4. Each child is different, and in this course, I help you to teach your child at his or her own individual pace.
Each step of the program includes an instructional video, along with a video of parent and child demonstrating fun and engaging activities and learning games. Phonics worksheets, flashcards, educational games and wall charts are included as PDFs. All you need to do is download the PDFs, print them off, and immediately start the activity with your child! These practical literacy activities will help your child develop excellent reading and writing skills, to speak well and be a good listener.

Disclaimer: The key message of this course for parents is to include children in everyday, nurturing life, where they are loved, talked with, played with and are well nourished; where they can socialise and explore and are kept safe. The course provides instruction in skill areas which can be applied during the early childhood years. In the course, I provide guidance to parents to check their child’s readiness to engage in the activities and monitor the child’s interest and engagement. Each child learns at their own individual pace. Some children may learn to read at 2, others at 5, and others later. The course is designed to help parents unlock their child’s own individual potential. This course does not in any way recommend, or intend to recommend, didactic instruction in skill areas that are developmentally inappropriate. It is up to you as a parent, to check your child’s willingness and readiness to learn. This course is not tailored to teach children who may have learning difficulties.
