The first program, Super Phonics, was created by a classroom teacher for use with his own students. He shared this program with a couple of teachers in his school and before long it had spread throughout the district. More than 70 titles and over 20,000 schools later, Essential Skills programs are still developed by classroom teachers with the same goal in mind; engage, educate and motivate students to learning success! These programs are now offered to parents in their own homes.
The reading program's activities are designed to strengthen your child's aptitude for the foundational skills required to master the educational expectations of any curriculum. The programs are highly interactive in such a way as to appeal to all types of learners, from visual, to auditory, to kinesthetic. The interactive nature of the programs, designed to increase learner engagement, helps to foster a sense of independence, agency, and metacognition - essential attributes of any successful teaching experience. Children are highly motivated and encouraged each step of the way.

Our programs are thoroughly tested, however with the vast number of operating systems, platforms, browsers and browser versions along with varying internet speeds it can be challenging to account for every scenario.
