Our materials are based on research done by leading experts in the field, including Leslie Hart, Carla Hannaford, Eric Jensen, Renate N. Caine, and Geoffrey Caine. The purpose of this approach to teaching of reading and math is to provide a method consistent with how a child learns best so that every student has a chance of achieving success.
The design of Child1st teaching resources is strongly rooted in the Child. We believe in looking at the Child first (1st) when designing materials to use in teaching them. Please view the process of what Child1st CEO, Sarah Major, follows when designing our resources. It was a meticulous and painstaking process that yielded amazing results.
While a formal research study has not been conducted on Child1st products, we do have an abundance of evidence showing the success of these materials.
