Did you know that 34% of children entering kindergarten lack the basic skills needed to learn how to read? Without an at-home literacy routine, children risk delays in developing skills like problem-solving and decision making.
Students at Primrose schools throughout Austin have been doing their part to help combat the literacy crisis in America. In March, Primrose students and families participated in the Og’s Bountiful Book Drive in honor of Read Across America Day.
Students and families donated new or gently used books which are then donated to charities across the country to support underserved children and families. More than 70,000 children at over 480 Primrose schools nationwide participated in the book drive, which also weaves in lessons of compassion, generosity and giving without expectation.
