Language and literacy are the pillars of Brant’s Comprehensive Learning Curriculum. It includes a unique Printing Program as well as a phonetically based Learning to Read Program.
Infant and Toddlers
We develop language through stories, rhymes, conversation and sign language.
We start our Learning to Read Program by introducing alphabet letters and sounds.
Our focus is on phonetics (sounds) and letters, enhanced vocabulary and developing oral communication skills.
Building on the pre-school foundation, we emphasize word building, word reading and, finally, sentence reading.
By the end of Brant’s SK year, most of our graduates are beginner readers, a critical skill if children are to be successful in Grade One and beyond.
