Phonics is the teaching of letter sounds - a as in 'ant', not A as in 'ape'. It is also the teaching of phonological awareness. These are the underlying skills which enable children to apply their knowledge of sounds (phonics) to reading words and sentences.
Our classes run during term-time only. Classes are once per week and run for 45 minutes. We prefer parents/carers to leave their children where possible during this time. Cost per term is $260 (specials are regularly on offer).
To gain maximum benefit from our course, we encourage parents to enrol their children for at least 3 terms (starting Term 1), although enrolment starting in Term 2 or 3 is also possible.
Our classes are small (2 teachers/max. 10 children) with an emphasis on fun and the children just happen to be learning at the same time!
The class format includes a story, worksheets, activities and games, all centred around the weekly sound/sounds.
