RtL supports children (ages 4-15) in regaining access to education that addresses the needs of the whole child. It uses a play-based approach to develop basic literacy, numeracy, and social- emotional skills, contributing to children’s school readiness, learning, and wellbeing. By providing quick access to education as longer-term opportunities are identified, RtL reduces the amount of time displaced children spend out of the classroom. The program includes a toolkit of play-based learning activities for children and the Holistic Assessment of Learning and Development Outcomes (HALDO) that gives front-line staff an overview of children’s development so they can make informed programming decisions.
