Key Stage 1 – School Years 1 – 2
Key Stage 1 includes children in school years 1 and 2. We run separate groups in small numbers for each school year to maximise the quality of the tuition. Use of educational resources alongside positive reinforcement ensures that your child builds an all-round character.

This 8-week program is designed to improve your child’s confidence in reading, spelling and writing.
The program covers all phonics (including start, middle and end diagraphs) and other less used phonics. We also teach your child how to string words together so that they can become more comfortable with reading.
This 8-week program focuses on developing motor skills for children aged three to four years. We teach your child how to use a pencil with a steady hand and become a confident, independent writer.
