Generally, infancy is considered to be from birth through 12 months old. At this time, making sure the infant has healthy food, good health care, love, a stable home, hearing people talk to him, and the freedom to explore by crawling are the best ways to prepare for later success in school.
Preschoolers begin getting ready to read and write by being read to, exposed to a variety of positive experiences, and participating in varied age-appropriate educational activities that stimulate their brains. Encouraging them to express themselves verbally and artistically, as well as manipulate crayons and other objects also help prepare them to learn to read.
By the time children are four or five, they are usually ready to learn to recognize letters and differentiate sounds. Again, being read to is especially important. Many children like to "read" their picture books and tell the story themselves. Singing and dancing are also a part of pre-reading activities. They also become more skillful at drawing and coloring, thus strengthening their fine motor skills in preparation for writing.
Six- and seven-year-olds are usually ready to begin actual reading. Probably the best approach combines phonics skills with "whole language" activities.
For more specific activities, check out preschool and early childhood curricula, all of which are designed to help children become successful readers and writers.
You said you chose "infancy and early childhood," right?
List what reading skills go on at these ages.

Frankly, I think you might want to choose a different age range!
