LeapFrog’s LeapReader gets top marks from UK Primary teachers

iChild research reveals 86 per cent of UK teachers would recommend LeapReader to parents to help with their child’s reading and writing skills.

Multi award-winning educational toy brand, LeapFrog, joined forces with iChild, the leading child development and education consumer website, to showcase the learning credentials of LeapReader, the ground breaking complete learn-to-read-and-write system.

Through iChild, LeapFrog worked with 100 schools across the UK, providing 200 teachers with the device to use in classrooms with children aged between four and eight, including special educational needs (SEN) pupils.

Following a two month trial run by iChild, 86 per cent of teachers involved in the research project said they would recommend LeapReader to parents to use at home to help with their child’s reading and writing skills. A further 79 per cent would also recommend LeapReader to fellow teachers.

Inspiring a love of reading has been our passion ever since and, as we celebrate twenty years of creating award-winning educational solutions, the iChild partnership further cements LeapFrog’s place in educational entertainment.”

“The feedback from our research with iChild truly highlights LeapReader as a key, teacher-approved player and we will continue to work with a wide network of teachers across the UK to highlight its unquestionable educational value and the supportive learning role it can play in the home.”
Tony Hicks, Chief International Officer at LeapFrog
