Welcome - Let's get your child reading!

At BORN2READ, our passion is teaching young children to read! We believe every child is BORN2READ – we just have to teach them! You can teach your child to read too. Become a BORN2READ Member and have the confidence to teach your child to read. The BORN2READ Readers have been written by Katrina Casey, a highly qualified, and registered teacher, with over thirty years experienced.  They have been trialled extensively.

At BORN2READ,  we realise we cannot teach every child to read on our own - we need your help!    If you are running a Professional Tuition Centre, or you are a teacher thinking about starting your own tuition business, you can now access the BORN2READ Collections to use in your very own business!   By signing up for the Professional Tuition Subscription, you not only have access to the BORN2READ Collections, but you can access the extensive Teacher Resources that support these readers!

At BORN2READ, we strongly believe that for children to become successful readers, they must be given the opportunity to read! The ability to decode words through the understanding of phonics, and the ability to recognise high frequency words, are important. However unless children are given the chance to put these abilities into practice, through reading, children are not engaging in the reading process . That is why at BORN2READ, we have developed over 550 online readers, for your child to read with you!

My son, Oliver completed the pre-prep Born2Read program last year with Katrina and I can’t recommend Katrina and her program enough.I have a boy who loves to read, write and spell as a result of Katrina’s “reading should be fun” approach along with her extensive literacy program.By going to Born2Read, Oliver received an excellent foundation to start Prep this year which I don’t believe would’ve been the case, had he just attended daycare/kindy and didn’t have any exposure to this type of learning.Katrina is an amazing teacher with a great intuition for what works in the education of young children and this is reflected in the program she has developed. Cheers Connie

Hi Katrina,I love Born2Read, your idea is fantastic. I've been using it all term and my readers who struggle really feel empowered as they read/learn the sight words and then find them in the books. Their confidence has risen in 8 weeks.Thanks very much Katrina.Kind Regards,Thérèse (Prep Teacher)
