Why Parents Love EarlyBird


"Our first grader was really struggling with reading and scoring below grade level in his school assessments. Our son loved the activities! We were blown away by the level of detail we were provided. This is what we have been searching for!”

— Father of a 1st Grader


“The most exciting thing we have seen is him become excited to read! Before, we had always found it to be a frustrating experience that left us all at wits end, but now it has become enjoyable and shared bonding time over stories. Super happy with Pip School and we have seen an almost unimaginable improvement in the short 5 months or so he has done it”

— 1st Grade Parent


“I love that the program uses the multi sensory approach where my daughter is physically moving the parts. It is so cool to see her gains within the program. She has been doing great in school and is sounding words out really well.”

— Mom of a Kindergartener
