What we do
We use technology to supplement foundation phase numeracy & literacy.

2015 Numbers: 240 Grade R-1 learners
How we measure
We conduct formal assessments with a treatment and control group to measure progress over time.
A baseline assessment has been conducted and the comparative analysis will take place in term 3, 2016.
The Grade R-1 treatment group attends computer-based sessions with their teachers 3-4 times a week.
