Speaking well, being able to read, and knowing how to write effectively are skills we all need to succeed in life. But did you know that the younger your child is when he picks up these crucial literacy skills, the faster he’s likely to develop intellectually?


Experts say that 90 per cent of brain growth happens by the age of five. If Junior has had a high-quality education by this age, he’s 40 per cent less likely to be held back a grade and 70 per cent more likely to complete secondary school. Children who grow up in a literacy-rich environment are said to be more cognitively developed and better prepared for success in school.

Singapore parents have plenty of choices when it comes to preschools that focus on literacy. But why settle if you can go for Little Green House’s LITERACY SMART programme, voted the “Best Literacy Programme” in 2017?


Little Green House immerses your preschooler in a literacy-rich environment to hone his basic, intermediate and advanced literacy skills.

- Richly stocked age-appropriate reading material from award-winning writers

- Audio learning stations and activity corners

- Class discussion on current-affairs articles

- Fun activities, games and quizzes

Role play and classroom projects The programme also identifies each kid’s strengths and weaknesses for gradual and sustained progress as a fluent reader, a confident speaker and a budding writer by age six.
