Program Highlights: 

The Alpha Kindergarten Reading Program for KG1 and KG2 understands the importance of engaging children with the art of reading and setting them up for a lifelong love of literature. Alpha Kindergarten Reading follows a carefully integrated, multimodal approach for introducing language art skills and guiding students towards acquiring mastery of the English language.
