The programme is designed to strengthen language and emergent literacy in pre-Grade R classrooms. It is interactive, activity-rich, NCF-aligned and is built around a 2-week story-based framework.

Wordworks trains trainers to offer this resource-based programme to pre-Grade R teachers. The teacher training integrates our Every Word Counts Programme core training so that the Little Stars focused teaching time is part of a holistic approach to building strong language across the daily programme.

The Little Stars Language programme is for pre-Grade R teachers working with children aged 4–5 years.
