HOW THE PROJECT/PROGRAM
FOSTERS A LOVE OF READING IN CHILDREN:
Reading is an important skill that needs to be developed in children. Not
only is it necessary for survival
in the world of schools, but in adult
life as well. The more children read, the better they become at reading.
more young children read stories and are read to, the greater their
interest in mastering reading. Reading can open up
new worlds and enrich
children lives. Does
reading really matter? YES
Literacy might not seem that important if you've acquired the skill, but if you don't have
it your life is likely to be poorer in every sense.
Curriculum: Destined for
a Dream incorporates our personal plan based on the child's need. However, we build a lot of the Wilson Reading Program
Their will be a $40.00 fee at the time of registration. This fee will cover registration, materials, and testing. We will be using some
methods of the Wilson Reading Program throughout the program. A monthly fee will be assessed per student.
This fee will help pay our staff, trips, tutoring services and maintenance of the program. As part of the program
we will also visit and stay in communication with your child's teacher. All Destined for a Dream teachers are certified,
degreed, and experienced professionals. All staff members are required to have background checks needed to
work with children.
