The Junior Readers’ PLUS Course has been specially curated by teaching professionals & phonics experts for the needs of early learners in the age group of 4 to 6 years. Kids at this stage are extremely inquisitive & eager to learn and can quickly grasp concepts if taught in an easy, structured manner. Introducing their agile minds to a kids friendly course will mentally stimulate and challenge them, and will help to build a strong foundation of the language through which they can conquer the higher levels and eventually become an expert in the language. Such courses also enhance their retention and memory power. The course is for 2.5 months with a total of 30 classes divided into 3 classes per week.

It is very important to expose children to any language early on as they are extremely agile and have an amazing power to retain and learn. Learning to read English through phonics has been scientifically proven to be the best way to teach kids to build a very strong foundation early on. Phonics helps them in developing phonological awareness which is the key to learning the language really early in a fun manner. This also aids brain development and boosts their imagination and confidence among peers and teachers.
Phonics courses give children a head start before their formal education begins. Schools have many children and teachers may not be able to give personal attention to each child at their own pace. Our age-appropriate courses help children perfect their basics of the language with personal attention and at their own pace and then start reading and writing on their own. This means that you can focus on spending quality time with them and do fun activities together and deepen your bond and love.
Yes, taking a demo class is advisable before enrolling for the course. There are 3 reasons for it:
- It gives you a good idea of how the class is conducted and whether the child is interested in it.
- It gives us an opportunity to assess the child’s level and recommend the most suitable course to start with.
- You get to clear any doubts that you may have about the course, mode of teaching, curriculum etc.
We have new batches starting every week. The course timings are flexible based on parents’ requirements. Please connect with one of our experts to book a slot.
The Junior Readers PLUS course is designed for 48 sessions. We typically take 3 classes a week so it will take about 16 weeks to complete the course.
However, the classes are taken as per the child’s pace and the teachers will not rush just because we have to complete the course in the allocated time. Hence, the duration of the course / total number of classes might change depending on the pace of the child or the group that the child is in.
The course merges the science of sound and its production methods with lips & vocal cord movements. The acoustic characteristics and mixing of syllables along with other sound intonations are taught in the easiest way so that children learn faster and develop correct pronunciation. Then they develop reading and writing skills starting from simple sentences and understanding tricky and sight words. They start to comprehend the stories and meanings behind them. The ratio of children to phonics experts is 1:4 so that each child can receive personal attention.
We also have one-to-one sessions for children based on the requirements. Our phonics teachers to students ratio are kept in a close group to pay more attention and better focus on our phonics kids.
Yes, parents can choose time slots as per their convenience for Power Readers classes.
We help and guide kids in the right direction and give more than 100% when it comes to making them understand and learn the concepts. Parents on the other hand play an equally important role in making sure that they revise what is done in the class, make sure that they read books to kids and make the child read everyday age-appropriate books. This will help develop the habit of reading in a child from an early age
Yes, all our phonics sessions are recorded and will be available on Learn2Read portal which can be accessed by parents after the class.
