The United Way Reading Oasis offers a safe and inviting space within the school where children can enjoy reading. This includes specially designed furniture and access to hundreds of brand new Scholastic UK books year-round. By encouraging reading for pleasure, it also reinforces the importance of reading outside of school and helps children to make it a habit at home.
In order to ensure that reading for pleasure goes beyond the school, each child in the United Way Reading Oasis programme will also receive a book of their own to take home, parents and carers will receive regular communications with tips on reading with their children, and nursery age children will receive one free book every month of the nursery school year through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.
