Merry Christmas.
We hope everyone has had a very good year and ready for a relaxing holiday.
We are busy getting a web site up and working so check us out next year!
In today's "Dominion" newspaper there was a report from Dr Sebastian Suggate of Otago University. His research is claiming that teaching children to read from the age of five is not likely to make them any better at reading than a child who learns from seven.
"Because later starters at reading are still learning through play, language and interactions with adults, their long term learning is not disadvantaged. Instead these activities prepare the soil well for later development of reading."
Dr Suggate's research has been placed on otago University's "distinguished list" of doctoral theses for 2009.
