What about phonics? Does KINDERGO actually teach kids how to read?

Thursday, 18 January 2018


KINDERGO is not a phonics app. What we’re really focussing on is learning to read through storytelling. From birth, you’ve probably spoken, read and sung to your child. And they have spoken back to you! My first word was cockroach, which may have had something to do with the amount of toast I threw around… my poor parents!

So what KINDERGO does is mimic what you have already been doing their whole lives; reinforcing language through natural application and repetition. And this process, when applied to reading, is called DYAD reading. We love the way DYAD reading doesn’t force learning, but rather engages your child in something they love doing; listening to stories.
