Pre-K Home & Family Engagement

Engaging families and caregivers

Reach Every Reader is creating digital tools and techniques to equip families with knowledge about how pre-literacy and reading skills are developed and how to create a literacy-rich environment at home. As we develop our products and resources, we regularly seek feedback from families throughout the design process to ensure that we are producing truly useful tools for families’ range of strengths and needs.

 

Using technology to support early reading skills

Critical pre-literacy skills can be developed long before elementary school. To address this, many digital markets are producing educational products for children to play independently. However, there is much evidence showing how important it is for families to play an interactive role in their children’s literacy development.

The Pre-K Home & Family Engagement team focuses on creating tools that promote enjoyable and meaningful interactions between pre-school-aged children and their families. By using readily-available technology, we can support personalized experiences easily accessible by millions of families.
