Reading Rascals

Reading Rascals believe that core skills needed for a successful productive life are learned and enlarged before the age of 6 in young scholars. Also, Reading Rascals recognizes the extraordinary expansion that occurs during the young scholar’s early years. Therefore, we focus on stimulating each young scholar’s innate craving for knowledge by introducing and reinforcing core learning competencies and promoting accelerated growth for kindergarten readiness.

We are committed to providing a high-quality early learning pre-reading program. We will build the solid foundation for ALL Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten and beyond young scholars’ skills. We will help the young scholar become equipped and ready prior to entering kindergarten on the first day of school.
