"Jack is doing really well. I was so concerned about him going to kindy this year and if he was ready (Jack turns 5 in May). He has settled in really well and loves learning letters and sounds and making words. He is behaving very well in school so far too. He did ask a couple of times when he was going back to Letterland and was sad to know he doesn’t get to go back. We still sing the song and read our book. It is a wonderful program and I’m so pleased we were a part of it for a short while. It really has helped initiate a love of learning with him. I wish I’d known about it for my eldest who was 5 when he started but just not that interested in reading and learning...more interested in playing!"

"I just want to say thank you for all your time, care and support with Isaac this year. He has really enjoyed your class and I've noticed such a difference from his time there. I will definitely be enrolling my daughter in your program when she is ready."
Vanessa, parent of Isaac
Poppy has really enjoyed Letterland, and learnt a great deal. I feel that she is now in a good position to start school. Let me know if I can do anything to help promote the classes.
Becky, parent of Poppy
“Thank you both so much for all your work with the boys - we cannot thank you enough. l believe that sending our boys to school knowing the letters, phonics and sounds will give them great confidence and really set them up for success in the classroom, and a life long love of reading and writing. We will certainly recommend Letterland to everyone and wish you all the best.”
