Learning Logic started in 1995 as a small publishing and educational company developing literacy materials for teachers and parents. Maureen Pollard is a literacy consultant who is passionate about helping teachers and parents understand the skills involved in teaching children to read and write. She has taught in Australia, England, Spain and South Africa and continues to be in touch with what is happening in classrooms. Maureen’s expertise has been used extensively to ensure all our publications are practical and are developed from evidence based research.
Maureen works as part of the Professional Learning team for Australian Council of Educational Research (ACER). She presents workshops for teachers and parents to develop their understanding of literacy learning and to give them hands-on experience using materials and programs to support their teaching. Helen Kirkland, Co-ordinator of Learning Support at Tintern Girls’ Grammar, co-presents at many of these workshops.
In 2009 Learning Logic launched a new brand: Little Learners Love Literacy®. The name reflects our mission more explicitly. It is an exciting step forward enabling us to extend our range of literacy resources for children 3 – 6 years. The Little Learners Love Literacy® resources teach children phonemic awareness, the alphabetic principle (connection between sounds and letters), segmenting and blending words, handwriting, spelling and reading. Starting children on the road to literacy is exciting and important.
Little Learners Love Literacy has a team of expert illustrators, designers, musicians, teachers, parents, and writers to develop ideas and create the highest quality materials. All of our publications have been used with children so we know they work.
Learning Logic has always been committed to providing a friendly and excellent personal service to schools and parents. We enjoy the communication and ongoing contact.
