Innovations for Learning is now Chapter One
We want to bring literacy to even more children at the time they need it most. So, as we grow, we're changing our name to better represent our work and core belief that reading is the foundation of learning and opportunity.
It all starts with literacy!
The beating heart of our organisation has always been the one-to-one connection we make with children from less advantaged communities to help them become confident readers in their pivotal first years of school. It's the combination of technology and this personal, human connection between a caring adult and a child that sets us apart.
Chapter One’s proven, scalable solutions will help thousands of children create the “first chapter” of their own success story.
Our formula for transformation is unchanged: One caring adult. One child at a time.
