Our Mission


Our mission is to provide every child with the opportunity to develop strong literacy skills that will serve them throughout their lives. We are dedicated to implementing research-based literacy practices that prioritize explicit and sequential teaching from the earliest stages of a child's education. By doing so, we aim to equip every child with the confidence and ability to read, write, and spell proficiently. Our goal is to create a foundation of literacy excellence that will support children in their academic pursuits and beyond.
