P-3 Bridge Highlighted In Local Media

The Oceanside Courier, the official newsletter of the City of Oceanside, recently featured information about Vista Unified's P-3 Bridge initiative. The P-3 Bridge is designed to provide learning resources from pre-natal to grade three that invest in a child's learning process.


According to the article, the initiative creates, "a seamless learning pathway starting before a child is born to the all-important learn-to-read/read-to-learn passage in 3rd grade."


Children's brains develop fastest between birth and age three. In fact, by the time a child enters kindergarten their brain is more than 90% formed. This research tell us that supporting families before birth to setup a home environment that stimulates learning, and providing outreach activities and support when a child is an infant, toddler and preschooler can make a tremendous difference in their future success in literacy, mathematics and social emotional skills."


Read the full letter at the link above, and be on the lookout for the launch of this program in the coming school year.
