Marie Lewis, Rochdale
“My class have reaped loads of benefits from using the programme and the difference in some of their reading skills has been dramatic."
Maria Andrews, Foundation Phase Teacher
"This is a fabulous game. I'm not kidding when I say that my daughter essentially learned all her letter sounds using First steps, with relatively minimal input from me! Great for parents to practise their letter sounds too."

Can’t Go Wrong!
We love this app! My son started it at about 2 years old for support with letters and sounds. He will be 3 soon and can recognize a few sight words. It’s all because of this app! It’s fun, educational AND he gets his tablet? That is a big win at our house!

Love this app! My grade 1 students progressed so well with their reading, using the web version at school, and many chose to purchase the app to continue at home. They returned to the games again and again. Thank you.
