Published on: 2nd November 2016

LeapFrog has released the latest of its Teacher Testimonial videos, this time celebrating the launch of its newest learning system.

Leapstart-480Teaching 50+ key skills, from the alphabet and basic counting to social skills, problem solving and coding, LeapStart gives parents of both pre-schoolers and school starters plenty of support in continuing to develop their child’s education at home.

Video testimonials from primary school teachers have proved powerful for the company in the past, showcasing the benefits of LeapReader. The LeapStart testimonials highlight how closely the interactive learning system supports the national curriculum, and complements learning techniques used in the classroom. The videos are being distributed via Facebook, taking advantage of the platform’s constantly evolving targeting possibilities, which ensure LeapFrog’s activity remains ever relevant, timely and engaging.

The testimonials also further support the recent trial by leading child development website iChild, which saw 200 teachers across 100 primary schools test out LeapStart in their classrooms. The system received top marks across the board, with 97% of all teachers recommending LeapStart for parents to use at home and 91% agreeing that LeapStart supports the national curriculum.

Sally Walker, MD of LeapFrog UK, commented: “We’re thrilled with the academic praise and feedback we have received from teachers for LeapStart. Our learning team has been involved in every step of LeapStart’s development, ensuring that LeapStart supports the school curriculum, delivering a combination of education and entertainment for pre-school and primary school children. These testimonials further build on this by highlighting LeapStart as a perfect companion for parents to use to help support their child’s learning journey outside of the classroom.”
