Southampton children enhance reading skills

Date: 20 Sep 2017

Children at Bright Horizons Southampton Day Nursery and Preschool have been enhancing their reading skills by reading aloud one of their favourite stories.

The children have been enjoying “Betty Goes Bananas” and have been practising reading the book to each other, as part of Bright Horizons’ Growing Readers enhancement.

“The children are enthralled and say ‘lost her bananas,’” said Nursery Manager Deirdre Mellors. Each day, many times they choose to listen to this book and participate.

The Growing Readers enhancement aims to emphasise the importance of reading aloud and cultivate a love of books.
