WHAT WE OFFER
SCHOOL READINESS CLASSES
Preschool aged children
In these school readiness classes we teach your preschool child the early literacy skills required to succeed in their first year of school. We introduce them to the foundations of letter sounds with the help of the lovely Letterland characters. Letterland is an evidence based program used to teach phonics to preschool children and used in many schools across Australia.
The classes incorporate:
- phonemic awareness (Rhyming, identifying first and last sounds in words)
- letter-sound correspondence
- decode simple CVC (Consonant-Vowel-Consonant) words like bat.
- early handwriting skills (Victorian cursive)
- building vocabulary and oral language skill
- concepts of print.
- teaching based on evidence-based approaches that are suitable for all learners (MSL, Sounds-Write)
- Games and most importantly FUN!!!

KINDERGARTEN SCREENING AND TEACHER TRAINING
Early Literacy Intervention
We offer an early literacy screener to local kindergartens and childcare centres in the Bayside and Glen Eira areas.
We can arrange to come into your kindergartens and childcare centre and offer PD's about early literacy and the importance of it in the early years and offer resources and advice on how to easily implement it to build the right foundations for literacy for all children including those that might have other learning difficulties (dyslexia, ADHD, low working memory, developmental language disorder).
Individual literacy support classes
We offer individual sessions for students of all ages and are focusing on students that struggle with literacy either due to dyslexia or the need for specialised instruction. The sessions run for 50 minutes and are individually tailored to fit the students needs. Each student will do an assessment to find out their strengths and weaknesses and come up with a customised session plan.
$110 per 50 minute session
