Reading opens up a world of language, knowledge and captivating stories for children. This powerful skill will set your child up for success across many school subjects and into their adult life. To ensure reading success, it's crucial that your child must have a strong foundation in phonics. 

Why children MUST master phonics to become STRONG readers 

Phonics is one of the five essential components of reading that children need to acquire to become successful, fluent readers. The systematic synthetic phonics approach is globally regarded as the most effective method of teaching children to read and is endorsed by the evidence-based Science of Reading.  

Through solid systematic synthetic phonics instruction, children learn to decode words by using letter-sound connections to sound out each phoneme and blend sounds together to read words. These skills strengthen their overall reading and writing abilities.
