Your Child Will...
Get the attention they need in small groups of 4-6.
Enjoy learning through fun and engaging activities.
Be taught a proven hand-writing curriculum through workbooks and rhymes.
Be encouraged to use a growth mindset.
Feeling like your child is behind is stressful. Wondering if they are getting the attention and support they need in school is frustrating.
I get it. I’m a Mum too. I experienced this with my own boys and with many other families.
Learning to read and print is an ongoing life skill. It begins in the early primary years when you are setting children up for success as they journey through school and beyond.
We know that children learn and focus better when they have someone else to help and support them. I’m here to help.
I have 8 years of experience running this program in the school and now from my home. I’m passionate about teaching and
supporting children with:
Properly holding their pencil
Printing and recognizing letters
Writing words and sentences
Reading as the two go hand in hand
Your child will be so proud of themself as they improve and gain confidence in this important skill.

"I have had the opportunity to have both of my children in the HWT Program. This has helped them and so many other children with the opportunity to improve their printing skills with proper letter formation and gain confidence in their letter recognition and letter sound as they progressed to the printing of words and sentences."

Meet Your Lead Coach!
My name is Nicola! I'm passionate about helping Little Learners gain confidence with printing. I'm married with 2 teenage boys and as a stay-at-home mum I have been fortunate to help as a Parent Volunteer in the Elementary school they both attended. For many years I ran this program in the school and now I run it from my home. It has been 8 years now and I love it!

Details about the Little Learners Program
The Little Learners program runs in 10-week blocks in tandem with the school year. There are no program sessions on PA Days and/or during school breaks. Each session is 30 minutes long. You can register your child(ren) for 1 or 2 sessions a week. Sessions are weekly because repetition and consistency are very important when developing this skill.
Each session has 4-6 children in the same age group. Our age groups are Kindergarten, Grade 1 & 2, and Grade 3. They are given their own workbook and activity materials to work through. We utilize the Learning Without Tears workbooks and other resources. Each week your child(ren) will be encouraged to read regularly as reading and writing go hand in hand.
During the program, I provide a balance between structure so your child focuses and fun so they are excited to learn each week. Your child will receive exciting rewards and recognition as they progress through their own individual learning.
Working alongside a small group of peers helps them see how others are learning and gives them the opportunity to help each other out.
It is amazing to see how quickly children pick up what they are learning and watch as they are so proud of their accomplishments.
