Literacy for Children

Assisting children in acquiring the basic literacy skills, in the Maltese or the English language is the main objective of this program. This is achieved by providing children a positive learning experience, celebrating their effort and success. Tutors have a fundamental role in this, creating a nurturing environment by being aware of the various strengths and needs of these children, most of whom have a history of academic failure. Good session preparation, and tutor training are essential for the effectiveness of this program.
