Learning Stars

Taking children from learning to read to reading to learn

Learning Stars is a high-level pre-primary course that provides a solid introduction to communicative English along with building reading, writing and spelling skills, ensuring that children have the right capabilities to begin full-time schooling.

Learning Stars builds a foundation in English and other curriculum subjects, giving children the best start to primary school. The course has a lively drama and roleplay element to help
young learners practise language in a memorable and fun way, as well as a strong
assessment strand to support teachers as they review and check students’ progress.
