Nemours understands that success in reading is essential to a child’s well-being and that if reading problems are not discovered early the challenge to close the achievement gap is greater. Nemours BrightStart! was designed with the help of early childhood educators, researchers and early learning specialists to address the problem of reading failure. This one-of-a-kind program offers science-based instructional programs, tools and professional learning services to address the real-life challenges of building reading readiness skills in young children as early as prekindergarten. Our program joins together schools, teachers and families to ensure that every child is given the chance to become a successful reader.
