A huge milestone for you and your little one is coming soon, so why not give them a chance at a great start to big school.
Reading Eggs is here to help and guide you on the road to school readiness in our specially developed Get Ready for Big School Programme. Over 10 weeks your child will get a series of lessons and worksheets to help prepare them for their big day.
The Reading Eggs Get Ready for Big School Programme is an online learning programme that offers young learners an insight into school life. It's a chance to give them that extra boost of confidence they need for the lessons they'll get in the first year of school.
All it takes is just 15–30 minutes a day to see learning progress. There will be a series of online and offline lessons that your child can take part in. It will coincide with the final term of the school year before their new year starts, so they'll not only grow in confidence with their learning, but gain a feel for a school term.
Designed by experienced primary teachers and based on proven learning principles, the 10‑week programme will help your kids prepare for one of the greatest milestones in their young lives.
You'll receive ongoing support over 10 weeks to make sure your child achieves their maximum potential, including weekly emails and On Demand webinars. Children can also enjoy fun incentives, which will help them stay motivated to keep learning and having fun along the way.
Best of all, your child can complete the entire 10‑week curriculum at home, whether it's on a desktop, iOS, or Android device. Children will love the colourful and engaging lessons that progress at a steady pace. All the while, you'll have real‑time reports to track their progress and printable worksheets that supplement their learning offline.
“I just wanted to let you know how absolutely fantastic your programme is. My son is 4 and was expressing anxiety and reluctance to attend school because he said the reading was “too hard”. We began him on Reading Eggs and the difference has been amazing. He is now so much more confident and happy about learning.”
Dr D. Joseph
“I absolutely love Reading Eggs. [My son] is only just 4 and he is doing so well with his reading. I never thought it possible to be honest! He loves it too. The first thing he says in the morning is 'Can we do Reading Eggs please?'”
“I just wanted to let you know that since using Reading Eggs, my son's reading at school has gone up three levels. He was having some trouble with new words but now shows confidence in sounding them out and giving it a go. My daughter is nearly 5 and will start preschool next year, and she also loves Reading Eggs.”
“This programme is CLEVER! My son, who had zero interest in sitting down to learn how to read, was excited to play the game. He loved the songs and watching to see what crazy creature would hatch from his eggs. The learning games are solid; they do all the things a great reading instructor would do but with excellent graphics.”
“My children love Reading Eggs. They enjoy learning to read and spell with the lessons. My son struggled with other phonics programmes. But he loved Reading Eggs. Opening a new egg after each lesson kept him motivated to finish the program. My daughter loved the Skills Bank part of the program. She was glad Reading Eggs had a spelling section.”
“The educational aspects of this course are fantastic – the content matches what the kids are doing / would do at school. My 4 yr old son taught himself to read with Reading Eggs during lockdown while his sister was doing schoolwork with me. He loves the new Fast Phonics area.”
