A Unique, Proven Approach to Promoting Reading Success
With the vision of helping every child become a reader, Reading BrightStart! specializes in developing research-based products, resources, and services to promote a strong reading foundation for children. Specifically, this includes unique and highly effective instructional curricula for infants through first grade, teacher training, and a literacy website for families to assist inclosing the reading readiness achievement gap for diverse young learners.
Our curricula include practical, science-based tools that integrate child development, early education, and pediatric health principles to build early literacy skills.
Infant and Toddler
Our infant and toddler curricula are comprehensive programs focused on increasing quality interactions between caregivers and the children in their care while integrating strong language and literacy foundations.
Our Level One curriculum is a research-based literacy supplement designed to be used in small groups to teach the foundations of early literacy to emergent readers.
Our Level Two curriculum builds on the foundational early literacy skills to develop reading fluency in early readers while incorporating multisensory learning techniques.
To support educators in the implementation of the curricula, we have multiple professional development opportunities that can be tailored to meet the needs of your program.
