Reading Circle

Welcome! The Pickering Reading Circle is entering its 22nd year.

Since starting The Pickering Reading Circle has helped over 1000 children with literacy in English and French. In speaking to participants who wake up early on a Saturday morning to work on their reading, comprehension and writing skills we can see the value of our services. For volunteers the reward lies in seeing and hearing the improvements in a child’s confidence when they achieve small or big success at school.

Literacy is a very important if not the most important aspect of learning during early childhood education. Our passion is to provide the opportunity for every child to excel. Giving them the assistance and tools to perform at the best level of their abilities. Our volunteers will work with young children to help them improve their chances of success during those early years, which will help to change the outcome of the future learning years.

Join us in changing the literacy statistics by volunteering to host your own reading circle. We will help you to set up a circle with volunteers.
