Products & Programs
PCREP is a resource that teaches parents and guardians techniques that will help to improve the reading level and skills of children ages 4 to 6 in five key areas: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency. Parents know when their child is struggling with reading, but they may not know how to help. PCREP is here to provide the tools needed to improve your child’s reading. We want to turn reading time into quality family time that everyone can enjoy.
