Important Information about the Reading Rocks Program

Please review this page in detail before submitting an application

  • Reading Rocks focuses on foundational literacy skills: phonics, sight words, and fluency; reading comprehension is NOT directly targeted in this program
  • This program is designed for children that struggle in their foundational reading skills
  • Children do not require a diagnosis of a Learning Disability to participate, although priority is given to children with the highest need
  • Priority is given to families that are given a reference from their school based on their recommendation for the child’s need for this program
  • Families who are not accepted into the program session which they are applying to will be put on a wait list, and given first priority for upcoming sessions; the earlier you apply, the better

*Submitting an application does not guarantee a space in the program. Due to high demand, and and the dependency on volunteers to staff our key positions, unfortunately the number of students we can place is dependent on the number of tutors that are available. Thank you for your understanding.*

Completed applications should be scanned and sent by email to [email protected]  

Applications can also be printed and submitted by regular mail to our Resource Center at 560 Guelph Line, Burlington, Ontario L7R 3M4
