Perspectives on Literacy for Young Children

Jacqueline Chung (Senior Principal & Academic Director, St James Kindergarten) Tan Beng Luan (Principal, Creative O Preschoolers’ Bay) Edmund Lim (Director (Special Projects), Educare)

The panel will discuss how various persectives on literacy have resulted from advances in research, changes in educational practices and public policy, as well as the current practices in literacy for young children. Learning language by active engagement, development of literacy before formal instruction, and whether writing or reading comes first, are some of the areas that will be covered.
