`We find that Read Write Inc. in Nursery puts our children in a really good place for Reception and Year 1.' Cyril Jackson, Tower Hamlets `A programme designed specifically for Nursery would help to support all teachers and enable us to provide the best start for our Nursery children.' Woodberry Down, Hackney `We try and create our own resources so ready-made would be ideal for better consistency.' North Walsham, Norfolk `This would be lovely for children to take home, and even for Reception children as a book to take home before Ditties. Good habits of reading books start young!' St Giles, Walsall
