“Once children master the seven sets of Reading skills, they will read fluently at grade level. Our team has proven this is true for 85% of all children – even those who are vulnerable in kindergarten. Our Reading App helps teachers plan, assess and track skill mastery so interventions can be applied immediately.”
– Dr. Janet Mort Early Learning & Literacy / Order of BC 2020
“If you can’t measure it you can’t manage it.”

Joyful Literacy is based on the most reliable international research. It’s not debatable!
