Don't just take our word for it, please take the time to read what other parents, teachers and lecturers have said about Letterland!
I don't know why all schools wouldn't be using Letterland as my children have thrived on it and particularly children of this age need to have fun whilst they are learning - to them it is not really learning it's having fun'
Parent, Australia, 2013
'I have been a teacher for 8 years and know of the myriad problems children face with the English language - Letterland is a brilliant solution to this - I am so glad I know about it now!'
Teacher, Bassendean WA Feb 2007
"The most useful professional development I have ever attended. Excellent overview of Prep – Year 3. I have come away armed with a myriad of practical ideas and I am enthusiastic about my future Letterland journey in my classroom!"
Marshall Road State School 2010
"This programme is the reason both my children have a reading age two years ahead of their actual ages"
Parent, Brisbane, Queensland
"Congratulation! Since my 4 1/2 year old son has been introduced to this amazing programme, he now recognises every letter of the alphabet (after only 2 months). He now wants to learn - because it is FUN."
Parent, Brisbane Queensland
'I have just been introduced to Letterland at my daughters school and want to congratulate you on coming up with such a parent and friendly educational product which allows the children to continue having fun with imagination,'
"A very professional presentation. It moved at a fast pace, gave lots of idea, hands-on and was sequentially planned. It was so inspiring!"
Matthew Flinders Anglican School 2010
"The presenter was excellent! She was a very experienced teacher who offered many practical Letterland and literacy strategies for prep to Year 3. A very valuable and rewarding professional development".
Bacchus Marsh Grammar 2010
"Very idea based. I walked away from this session very enthused about implementing this into my class".
Owen Primary School 2009
'Letterland is a highly sophisticated program that embeds letters in characters using pictograms and stories. This not only stimulates children's imagination, but gives children a visual cue to remember the letter shape and in doing so an auditory cue to recall the letter sound...(Letterland) is an educationally sound program that, best of all, is a delightful introduction to learning to read that teachers, parents and children all enjoy'
Lecturer, Early Childhood Studies. Edith Cowan University, Perth Western Australia
'The particular appeal that Letterland holds for me is the way in which it meets the needs of visual-spatial learners. These learners tend to be whole to part learners who need a conceptual framework in order to learn optimally. Letterland is a unique teaching program in that it provided that big picture - a colourful and engaging world in which letters (characters) have names, sounds, shapes and relationships governed by rules that make sense to a child. The childlike logic of the 'phonic fables' [make] the relationship between 'h' and the other consonants easy to assimilate into their 'whole' understanding'.... I would go so far as to say that ... it teaches children more about the rules of our written language than most early literacy programs, helping them to understand in what circumstances certain letters make certain sounds or are found in certain positions'
Lecturer and consultant, Early Childhood Studies Perth Western Australia Nov 2005
'I love Letterland and think that all teachers could do with a few serious lessons [in how to implement it in their classrooms].
Teacher, Esperance Primary School, WA April 2007
'We would like to thank you for the positive and inspiring effect you have had on our family with respect to the Letterland products and your ongoing support and advice to us as parents of two young children. Not only do you offer a wonderful service to parents and children in education, but also a personalised approach to each family's needs and requirements that uplifts and inspires each family member thereby fostering a very positive environment for learning to both parents and children alike. Thank you for your valuable service and website. Our children have come leaps and bounds in your care and we look forward to seeing them grow day by day in confidence as learners who enjoy the wonders of Letterland and a whole new world of reading. We highly commend you both and recommend Letterland as a learning tool for all young learners and families. Thank you!'
Parent, Gold Coast
The parents in my room are raving about the programme - they can't believe their children know all a-z letters in 2-3 weeks, and this knowledge is evident now in their reading and writing'
Paula Lindner, Year 1 teacher Brisbane Australia
'I have previously worked in the education dept for 8 years. The last school I worked at used Letterland. What an excellent program to use...I worked in special education, this is so easy to teach and for students to pick up, and understand. Well done!.'
'The Letterland activities are extremely popular with the children at PMH [Princess Margaret Hospital for children] and are a great way of encouraging them to engage in school activitires when they may be feeling unwell'
Hospital School, Oct 2007
