AGES 3-5

Give your preschooler a head start.

In the Kumon Reading Program, preschoolers start with “look, listen and repeat” exercises using colorful illustrations to connect words to familiar objects, before advancing to phonics and letter writing. Through practice, children develop a foundation of vocabulary, memory and phonemic awareness that will help them begin reading.
