The Strong Start™ Letters, Sounds and Words Program

We are fortunate to have support from our community to offer a unique program called Letters, Sounds and Words.  Our volunteers help children aged 5 & 6 learn the names of letters, a sound each represents and some initial words in print.  This program, written by a retired Educator in Waterloo Region, fits perfectly with our school curriculum.  It has been designed specifically for volunteers, who work with one child at a time and enjoy watching the great gains that are made in only 10 weeks.  This program is part of the Strong Start™ project and is funded by donations from individuals, businesses and community groups through the Waterloo Region Catholic Schools Foundation.
