— Jo Ann Lisciandro, Teacher, St. Leo School, Corona, NY

— Dotty Ewbank-Anderson, Teacher, John Hay Elementary

"Headsprout Early Reading was wonderful. In a month and a half my four-year-old went from knowing his ABCs to reading everything that he can get his hands on.”
— John Crone, Parent of a 4-year-old
"Headsprout is great! My son is finally sounding out words instead of guessing what the words are! His self-confidence has already improved! Thanks a bunch!”
— Colleen Timmer, Parent of a 5-year-old
"Just to let you know, our daughter started Headsprout on her 4th birthday. At 5 she had read all the Tree House Mysteries, along with hundreds of other books, including Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little. Headsprout started her on the happy road to reading. She reads for many hours a day and has learned so much. She is a very fast reader with total reading retention. Hooray Headsprout! Thanks!"
— Ann De Meij, daughter started Headsprout at 4 years old
"When your 6-year-old tells you, ‘I love Headsprout because it teaches me,’ you know you really have a strong program. I have been home schooling my two children for about 13 years and Headsprout is what I have always been searching for. It is the rare exception to find a curriculum that actually breaks down the instruction so that the student can absorb the lesson and learn. The progress our daughter made with Headsprout is impressive. Headsprout is a superior company with a superior program."
— Lisa Trejo, Parent of a 6-year-old
“I have never found any product of any kind that I was more enthusiastic about… Headsprout is absolutely wonderful! It pre-teaches, teaches, and then reviews what has been taught…all in a delightful package of fun and entertainment — that just happens to be terrific at teaching reading, too!”
— Kathy Beck, Parent of a 7 1/2-year-old
"We are dedicated to providing all of our teachers with the most effective resources available in education. After a few years of investigation and research of their company, I am convinced that Headsprout may have the long-term solution for eliminating illiteracy in our community by building the skills and strategies in those early grades that are so essential to life-long learning. According to virtually all research that I can find, strong reading skills in children before they hit third grade is the best way to give all children a chance for a successful school career and be a contributor to society."
— Dr. Greg Firn, Superintendent of Anson County Schools
"Lake Washington selected Headsprout Early Reading for our primary and preschool students after an extensive competitive review process of leading reading products. Administrators love the reporting capabilities, teachers love the imbedded assessment activities, and parents love that students can use Headsprout Reading from home. Students using Headsprout are engaged, are showing remarkable improvement, and love using the program."
— Dr. Chip Kimball, Superintendent of Lake Washington School District, WA
"The progress of our Headsprout students is remarkable. One student in Tier 2 of Response to Intervention increased from 30 words per minute to 96 and is now on grade level — in just 3 months! We are excited about using the program district-wide in K-2. We know that Headsprout will fill our gap in research-based, highly-engaging, literacy interventions for young children."
— Karen Cheser, Assistant Superintendent for Learning Support Services for Boone County Schools
"Headsprout Early Reading has been an excellent literacy solution for our students, while also addressing the needs of our ELL, intervention, and special needs students. Our test scores have increased dramatically, and our teachers and students love it."
— Roberto Flores, Principal, PS 106, Brooklyn, NY
