Foundations provides for children in the early stages of literacy development. This springboard programme teaches young children the necessary pre-reading skills in a positive, English language learning environment. LCentral students develop phonemic and phonological awareness, including accessing initial sounds in words and correct word pronunciation. Foundations incorporates educational experiences designed to stimulate the children s minds as they explore the English language. Critical Thinking and Creative Art activities are incorporated into the lessons. They provide a base to further develop speaking, comprehension and communication skills in meaningful contexts for young students. Handwriting is also explicitly taught using LCentral s unique WorkBooks. Phonemic awareness activity pages are also provided within the WorkBooks for students to reinforce their English learning at home.
