See video testimonial from teachers for LeapFrog’s latest learning system as 97% recommend it to support learning

A new series of Teacher Testimonial videos fro LeapFrog celebrates the launch of its newest learning system, the award-winning LeapStart.

Video testimonials from primary school teachers have proved powerful for the educational toy brand in the past, showcasing the benefits of learn to read and write system LeapReader. The LeapStart testimonials highlight how closely the interactive learning system supports the national curriculum and complements learning techniques used in the classroom.

Surrey based teachers Linsey Unwin and Cat O’Connor of Cross Farm Infant School, Frimley discuss their personal experiences of using LeapStart with their pupils. They praise the learning system for harnessing a love of learning, inspiring curiosity and helping on their mission as teachers to inspire children. 

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

Sally Walker, Managing Director of LeapFrog UK, says: “We are thrilled with the academic praise and feedback we have received from teachers for LeapStart. Our learning team has been involved on every step of LeapStart’s development, ensuring that LeapStart supports the school curriculum, delivering a combination of education and entertainment for Preschool 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.”

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

The videos are being distributed via Facebook, to ensure LeapFrog’s activity remains ever relevant, timely and engaging.
