The demands on school children today are very different to those of earlier generations. Hence the ability to READ, to READ well and above all to LOVE reading is more important today than ever before. Good READERS become GOOD LEARNERS!!

    Trained Tutors with experience

From the age of 3 we teach children sounds by means of sensory integrated fun activities.
Once they can identify sounds well, we introduce the sounding out of words and incidental reading. The classes are fun-filled and at a pre-schooler level. We use various games to grasp basic sounds well. “Big school” is full of adjustments and new challenges. Reading does not have to be one of them. We know that the advantage a child who is confident about his sounds and reading, is of great value!

In countries like England, America, New Zealand and Australia children begin to learn their sounds at the age of 3 or 4. In South Africa children begin this only when they are 6 or 7 years old and thus do not benefit from the best period of a young child’s brain development. We make use of Sensory Integrated Actvities and also Brain Integration (using both sides of the brain).

Grade 1 to 3 learners

While an early exposure to reading in the home language is the road to success, we also help learners who are not confident with their sounds or who can still not read. They too can be put on the road to success!!! Often parents discover at the beginning of Grade 2 that their children simply memorized Grade 1 School reading work and cannot actually read. This can cause tension and lead to a bad learning experience. “Little Readers” can help to identify the problem through a diagnostic test and provide practical help to overcome the problem. If a Grade 3 learner cannot read fluently, it can result in him falling behind in the learning process. It is therefore vital that this must be rectified in the Grade 3 year.

A child who enjoys reading and who reads often has a great academic advantage.
