My son has finished his pre-school year being able to read many words and learns new words rapidly. He can count beyond 20 too. His reading ability puts him a year ahead of where my daughter was at the same age, giving him a distinct advantage My daughter attended a private school's early learning centre. The Learning Sanctuary - Norwood has achieved far more with far less. I am very pleased with the outcome.My son was very happy attending the centre and like to be first in line for going to the learning room. A very good outcome. The caring and teacher staff are very friendly, supportive and nurturing. I have recommended this place to my friends.
