Classes are for 1-5 year-olds have been developed by early reading experts to give children the best start for learning to read. Our unique progressive curriculum is based on the latest research and best early years practice. Reading Fairy’s curriculum supports every age and stage of a child’s preschool reading journey. We believe in learning through play.

Our activities include:

  • sensory and performance storytelling,
  • songs and rhymes,
  • first words and fun phonics games,
  • picture book time and more!

Studies show that the benefits of reading for enjoyment are far reaching and include: academic success at school, creative and imaginative thinking, relationship building, developing empathy, feeling self-confident, and improving well-being.
