Jolly Phonics, the curriculum for the 3 & 4-year-old program, is a thorough foundation for reading and writing. It uses the synthetic phonics method of teaching the letter sounds in a way that is fun and multi-sensory. Children learn how to use the letter sounds to read and write. Independent studies find that after one year's teaching, children taught with Jolly Phonics have an average reading age about 12 months ahead of their actual age.
