A growing body of evidence from educational psychology and cognitive science demonstrates that there is an efficient way to teach so that children remember.

For this reason, it is important to make sure your child’s reading ability is progressively improving throughout primary school.

I’m not a trained educator, will I understand the content being shared?

While we will be explaining the basics of educational psychology and cognitive science, we will do so in a parent-friendly manner.

My child doesn’t attend Australian Christian College, is this an issue?

Not at all. You’re welcome to benefit from attending the webinar without obligation. Obviously, we’d appreciate it if you kept ACC in mind if you’re ever looking for a school in the future.

I’m not a Christian, will the webinar still be relevant to me?

The methods being shared to help children read are not explicitly Christian in nature, and so the webinar contents are applicable regardless of your worldview.

How long is the webinar?

Please allow 30 minutes. The content takes about 20 minutes to present, plus we allow for 10 minutes of FAQ.

Once you have my details, will you SPAM me?

Absolutely not! We dislike SPAM as much as you do. We promise to only email you information relevant to parents of primary-age children.
