The Phonics Stars classes are designed to be fun, educational and interactive; and provide regular opportunities for young children from around the age of 2 years to gain a gentle introduction to Phonics, develop those essential listening skills and build up their fine and gross motor strength.
Children also gain an opportunity to develop their social skills and understand codes of behaviour, learning to share, take turns and have fun learning through play.
Dance and movement is celebrated in class as well as interactive storytelling and creativity.
We promote active learning through play and exploration.
The innovative system and challenging activities have been developed over the past three years and has now been rolled out nationally through specially trained and licensed Class Leaders”
Phonics Stars was founded by Samantha Baldwin in 2014. As an Early Years Educator in an Outstanding London Primary School she noticed many children entering Reception who were far away from School Ready and needed a lot of support with some basic skills.
Some Parents needed support and encouragement and some were keen to learn ways in which they can help their own children with Phonics and other areas of learning.
