The Art Of Reading
Since 1965 the Boston Children’s School has been teaching children to read. From our youngest Honey Bear children, to our older Kindergarten children, our curriculum has been dedicated to having children learn to read and to read with understanding. In addition to our reading curriculum, all BCS children take part in our D.E.A. R. Program (Drop Everything And Read!). Each week our children also review various timely topics with The Weekly Reader, a long established magazine created especially for children. Encouraging children to read is also underscored with our very own private BCS library. Our library books range from vintage children’s books, including the popular vintage “Pop-Up” books, to new, modern day children’s books. Our BCS children and their families know that books are like good friends. Reading a book can bring you happiness and smiles. Reading a book can give you information and, perhaps, answer a question. As a consequence, our BCS library is often a resource for our children and their families. Our library books contain stories about loss and separation and stories about new additions to our family. We have books that tell stories about vacations to new places and books that that can take you and your imagination to new galaxies! For more than 57 years, the Boston Children’s School has been providing children with the skills necessary to read. If you would like to know more about our reading curriculum, visit our library or take a tour of the school, please contact us at 617-367-6239. We look forward to speaking with you soon!
