Watsonia North Primary School provides a Reading Recovery Program for children in Years Prep - Year 1.

What is Reading Recovery?

Reading Recovery is a school-based early intervention program developed in New Zealand by Dame Professor Marie Clay to assist year one students who require additional assistance to be able to read and write as well as most of the other children in their class.

Reading Recovery provides a second opportunity for children in Year 1 having difficulty with literacy learning as the strategies used complement the Early Years reading and writing program that is provided daily by teachers in the classroom.
