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.
