tutors) have great energy and enthusiasm that rubs off on all the
children I see at the centre, especially ours!"

formality and school-like atmosphere. In the first three months since
joining Explore our children have progressed by up to half a school year

attending sessions, the tutors make learning fun and we struggle to get
them to leave!"

Patricia Okwuasaba, Parent

Liza Strong - Parent
"Explore Learning has helped my child to experience learning
through a different medium to what is traditionally taught in a
classroom environment. The interactive nature of the computer based
sessions and the 'lizard card' systems have helped my child to increase
his confidence and see real progress in key curriculum areas."
Elizabeth Federer, Parent
"The last parent's consultation at school before Jack (6) started
at Explore was depressing and disappointing, I was told about all the
things he wasn't good at. The recent one was a totally different
story. After 3 months at Explore Jack appears to have come leaps and
bounds - I actually left there smiling! He is more confident answering
questions in a group situation and his reading has improved so much that
he has moved up a level."
Kathy Newport, Parent
"Robert loves Explore Learning and the challenge it provides. His
maths has progressed and he is overtaking some of his classmates. He is
never too tired to go to Explore, even at the end of a busy day. The
program has strengthened his progress at school and his teachers have
noticed the improvement. I consider it money well spent."
Jane Rivett - Parent
"My child has really grown in confidence. His self esteem has
improved and as a result he is willing to attempt work that he would not
have been able to before joining Explore Learning."
C. Roberts, Parent
"Rory's ability to concentrate has improved greatly. Things that
Rory failed to grasp first time round at school have been worked on at
Explore; a great academic and confidence boost. The very fact that he is
happy to go to Explore and study says a great deal about the centre."
