Help Your Child Get a Nemours BrightStart!
Nemours BrightStart! helps parents understand early literacy development and provides tools to help their children gain skills for reading success.
Nemours BrightStart! reading readiness screenings are very child-friendly. Specially trained staff work one-on-one with the child to check his or her knowledge of print, letter names, sounds, and listening skills that support the abilities required in learning to read.
The screening only takes about 10 minutes. If a child has trouble with these skills, Nemours BrightStart! may provide direct services including special early literacy instruction, or offer guidance for parents and teachers to help the child build these skills and become better prepared for reading success.
Our state-of-the-art mobile classrooms bring Nemours BrightStart! expertise to you. We provide screening, instruction and general information at events in communities throughout the year.
