In the dynamic landscape of education, the spotlight is increasingly turning towards early childhood development, recognising the profound impact it has on a child’s future academic journey.
Leap Street, spearheaded by founders Emma Ellsmore and Caroline Peters, emerges as a beacon in this realm, prioritising early exposure to education as the catalyst for confident, happy students – the perfect recipe for learning success.
Caroline, co-founder of Leap Street, articulates the organisation’s mission succinctly: “We are passionate about reversing the trend of declining literacy levels.”
This passion is mirrored by Emma, who emphasises, “We nurture a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.”
It is this commitment to fostering a lifelong love for learning that sets Leap Street apart.
The founders believe that nurturing a confident and happy learner during the early years leads to significantly improved educational outcomes in later stages.
Leap Street’s approach is grounded in science, drawing on the expertise of educators and child learning specialists.
Their small group classes are available for 3-year-old kindergarten students through to Grade 2, with a maximum of eight students in each class.
Alternatively, Leap Street can provide one-on-one tutoring sessions for those who require a more advanced or tailored teaching approach, in the comfort of your home either face-to-face or via Zoom.
Led by expert teachers, Leap Street ensures every student’s individual learning needs are met.
Leap Street’s dedication to staying abreast of educational research informs its evolving teaching approach.
The incorporation of phonics in reading instruction, validated by a recent study, highlights their commitment to evidence-based practices.
This method has demonstrated a substantial increase in the number of students meeting literacy benchmarks, from 43 percent to an impressive 67 percent.
In a world where education is the cornerstone of a child’s future, Leap Street stands as a testament to the transformative power of early, scientifically informed learning experiences.
As they continue to pave the way for confident and motivated learners, the impact of Leap
Street extends far beyond the classroom, shaping the trajectory of young minds toward a lifetime of success.
