About Us

The Reading Studio was established by Robert and David Berkelouw in collaboration with Associate Professor Jane Torr.

Our teachers are early childhood specialists with a passion for children’s literature and a deep knowledge of how young children learn to read and write English. Children who learn in our environment realise that reading is entertaining and fun. They want to read because it is enjoyable, and the more they read, write and discuss, the more skilled they become at it. We are based in Sydney.
