Souns Early Literacy Program

We are proud to offer the Souns Early Literacy Program at Get Set Preschool. We see children eager to learn and read. Souns places specifically designed and sequenced letters of our phonetic alphabet into the hands of our preschoolers. Their hands hold, play with and explore the letters. Since each letter is given only one label—the most common sound of that letter—the child slowly builds a base of letter-sound associations for the early stages of reading. Learning becomes incidental, natural and fun! Children love learning their sounds, building words and reading with the Souns Program. 

School Calendar

"My daughter is a student in First Pres’ Get Set Preschool program. She absolutely loves it! Each and every day she is learning something new. There isn’t a single day that she doesn’t have excitement for the new things she has learned. As a parent, I am so pleased to know my daughter is not only learning, but excited about what she is learning. I feel confident about leaving her with the teachers at First Pres, knowing that her safety is important to them. I know the Get Set program will prepare her for the things she needs to start kindergarten."
