Spotlight: Early Childhood Literacy and the Science of Reading

Strong Readers Start Here

Coney Island Prep leverages a research-backed approach to teach the science of reading. We focus heavily on phonics instruction, word recognition, vocabulary, background knowledge and comprehension skills, to cultivate our young learners’ strong reading abilities from the moment they step into our building.

With two teachers in every classroom to support smaller ratios and provide more individualized support, scholars spend most of their day in small group instruction tailored to their needs.
