Parents sometimes send their kids to playschool and often doubts how their children learn how to read through play-based education. We are definitely that play is a vital milestone for young kids, at least to a certain degree, they’re not trolls, but they can’t put up the pieces of the puzzles that the ideas. That most of the kids mostly that are left to their own devices, will actually learn to read without our supervision.

Some know how to read at the age of 2. Parents might worry, but the truth is that it all falls well within the range of “normal.” The research on reading indicates that the natural window for learning to read extends to as late as 11 years old!

Learn how to read

Winter Concert.. Betances Early Reading Lab in Hartford, CT



If your children participate in music programs during the winter, you know that the cold, dry weather can offer up special challenges to both voices and musical instruments. To help your child make the most of his or her winter concert series, it’s important to acknowledge these cold weather obstacles and act proactively to avoid your child getting sick or not being able to perform. Younger children are especially vulnerable since they don’t yet have the experience to know what to do in the winter.
