Davis Reading Programme for Young learners
The Programme provides important tools to beginning readers. Through the unique partnership philosophy of the programme, parents or other family members gain the skills needed to provide the child with ongoing quality support.
The Best Start
Young learners deserve the best start we can give them. Strong research evidence suggests that children who are exposed to Davis methods at pre-reading or primary level (age 5-7) benefit in the following ways:
Our aims are
- to provide lifelong learning skills to younger children through a partnership between Facilitator, child and parent
- to give one or both of the child's parent, or a support person, sufficient confidence and skill to continue working with the Davis Young Learner's Kit after the programme
- to provide children with the conceptual skills needed to develop reading fluency and comprehension.
As part of the programme, students will always receive the Davis Young Learner Kit for Home Use, to be used at home to follow up with the programme.
