The Early Childhood Reading Program administered by three reading specialists, is modeled on professional tutoring programs shown to be highly effective for improving reading outcomes. A balanced reading approach, incorporating the strategies of Reading Recovery and the Wilson program, are presently being used by the reading specialists.
