Primrose Schools is joining Scholastic and Reach Out and Read, a non-profit organization of medical providers that advocates childhood literacy, and inviting families to a National Open House Event on Saturday, July 20th from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at its school, located at 1280 Bloomingdale Ave.
Families will enjoy interactive story reading, book-related arts and crafts, music and movement and face painting.
“This early literacy celebration seeks to teach children to learn and love to read,” said franchise owner Ketan Gohil.
The program will encourage all parents to join Scholastic’s global literacy campaign, “Read Every Day, Lead a Better Life”, which supports every child’s right to read and be successful in school and in life.
“Reading sets the foundation for a child’s future,” said Gohil. “That is where we can make the greatest impact in a child’s young life to prepare them for a lifetime of learning.”
According to Reach Out and Read, reading to children is a powerful way to build language and literacy skills which provide the foundation for a child’s future success in school.
In addition to the focus on literacy, parents will also tour the campus and be introduced to the ideology of Primrose School of Bloomingdale, which uses a balanced learning system approach that includes multiple components that support children’s social, emotional, cognitive, creative and physical development.
Primrose serves children from six weeks to six years old as well as after-school programs for children up to age 12.
The program continues to receive recognitions, most recently in 2012, when it became the first organization to earn AdvancED™ Corporation Systems Accreditation based on the New Standards for Quality Early Learning Schools, the highest-level accreditation an early learning school can receive. The Standards focus on how well schools prepare children for future success as well as how they address the health and safety of children in the school.
