Emergent Literacy

« Back to Glossary Index

The concept of emergent literacy suggests the development of literacy takes place within the child over time. It begins at birth and is encouraged through participation with adults in fun, meaningful activities. Emergent literacy includes oral language, phonological awareness, and print knowledge. For more information on emergent literacy, a CICC info module titled Emergent Literacy—Introduction can be found at http://www.inclusivechildcare.org/learning-info-mod.html.
