Getting your child ready for school isn't just about buying a backpack, it's about getting them ready to learn.

Every parent wants their child to start school feeling excited and eager to learn

If their first year of school is one where they feel comfortable, prepared and are praised for their early progress, they are well on their way to a rewarding and successful educational journey.

Research shows children who start school with higher levels of reading learn up to 15,000 more words in their first year. What this means is the more you know to start with, the more you learn at school.

Bud-e will ensure your child is learning more when they start school.

My four year old daughter loves Bud-e and I can't believe how quickly she is learning to read and write words.

Bud-e will give your child the foundation and tools they need to succeed at school

They'll feel good about their first encounters with school because they will be experiencing success and the excitement of learning. They won't be struggling to grasp the basics while others march on ahead because they will already have mastered them.

Bud-e is a program designed by leading international literacy expert, Jill Eggleton QSO, which lays the foundation of literacy learning in an innovative and engaging way that includes printed books as well as a digital app children love.

It's highly motivating, based on pedagogically sound practice and so much fun the children don't even realise they are learning one of the most important lessons of their life - how to read.

Bud-e will introduce your child to the key skills in learning to read and write words

Oral Language development - listening and speaking skills

Comprehension - thinking skills

Learn to read and write a bank of common words

Be introduced to phonics - letter names and sounds

Be exposed to and learn poems

The best way we can prepare our children for this fast-moving world is to ensure they experience the excitement of learning. If their first encounters with school are positive because they are well-prepared, they will know what it feels like to achieve early success. They will understand how good it feels to do well and they will know that by perseverance they can achieve anything. Bud-e will do this for your child. It will set your child up for a lifetime of learning.

Give your child the power that comes from being able to read and the opportunities reading opens up for them.
