lafonda - i have had it on a non ftb payment day before. It could be that the child care centre hasn't given all their details and is holding it up.

Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become.
