While working with children who needed additional support, Maureen Pollard realised there was a need for explicit and sequential phonemic and phonics teaching in Australian classrooms. When she helped teachers change their approach and pedagogy, the overall literacy results improved drastically and Learning Logic and Little Learners Love Literacy® was born. 


Evidence-based literacy research stresses the importance of explicit and sequential literacy teaching from the beginning. Our goal is to have this happening in every Foundation classroom from Day 1, giving children the best possible chance of being fluent readers, writers and spellers.


It also makes it clear that the most effective way of teaching reading is to include 5 key components: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency practice, vocabulary and comprehension. Little Learners Love Literacy® has been developed to do this in a simple, sequential, explicit, effective and engaging way.

The hub

In 2019, Little Learners Love Literacy moved into its first brick and mortar store - The Hub. A store in the front, order packing in the back and training room upstairs, it is the perfect venue.

Getting there

What is the parking like?

There is limited on-street 2-hour parking. We are also very close to Surrey Hills train station (and consequently station car park). For someone who doesn’t mind a bit of a walk there is a garden/park nearby on Union road that has free parking outside.


I don’t drive, what are my options?

You can travel by train:

  • Belgrave/Lilydale Train from Flinders Street station.
  • Surrey Hills train station 5 minute walk away.

You can travel by tram:

  • 70 Wattle Park, Stop #55 Union Rd/Riversdale Rd
  • 766 Bus Box Hill for two stops or 15 minute walk
