  • Give your child a head start to reading with “Two Terrific”

    Is it ever too early to build literacy skills within your child, or teach him/her a new language? At “Two Terrific,” we don’t think so! Helping your child become a strong reader early on and strengthening his/her listening skills in language and music are great ways to prepare him/her for New York City’s most competitive schools. Experts agree that learning to read, speak new languages, or develop a musical ear comes most easily to children in the period from birth to age four. During this time, children can effortlessly absorb the rules of grammar and phonics, build expansive vocabularies, recognize musical patterns, and learn to love reading!
