The inspirED Reader & Writer Primary Program addresses the fundamental needs of students aged 4-12, giving them the skills and knowledge necessary to become the best versions of themselves inside and outside the classroom.
Our program is unparalleled for five reasons:

Research-Based Curriculum: Our curriculum incorporates research from some of the most reputable names in education, including the Teachers College Reading & Writing Project at Columbia University, Dr. Jan Richardson’s Next Steps Program, Dr. Tim Rasinski’s The Fluent Reader, and more.
Personalised Teaching: Our small class sizes allow teachers to personalise their support for each student as identified by our in-house assessments. This consistent feedback loop ensures that our students are learning the skills they need.
Strategies, not Formulas: More often than not, writing is taught through generic formulas and ends with students mimicking model texts with little thought (and learning) involved.
