To function effectively in the modern world, children need to be competent and confident with literacy. Literacy underpins children’s learning in early years settings and enables them to participate fully in everyday life. This Research in Practice Series title offers practical strategies for promoting children’s literacy development.



This book is for early childhood educators working with children aged three to six years, in preschool and the first years of school. It highlights:

  • how oral language is the foundation for literacy
  • the place of phonics in literacy teaching and learning
  • an active view of learning to read
  • writing to express ideas.

The book is based on high-quality contemporary research about literacy learning. It explains what this means for best practice in early learning settings and provides a rich range of ideas and activities that educators can draw on to suit their own context.
