Contrary to popular opinion, the answer is YES!
So, what happens in Phase 0, from birth to age 3 if parents or caregivers start early?
Did you know that almost all early readers write first and read later? Early readers not only have been read to, they are almost always “pencil and paper” kids. Very successful Montessori schools teach early literacy based on this model. The Phase 0 child loves books and literacy related activities because you enthusiastically engage her in literacy activity and entice her and this activity is meaningful, joyful, and fun!
