Last Goodbye

We are sad to announce that after 9 happy years of providing a children's book service in Oadby, our high street shop has now closed its doors. We would like to say a massive thank you to all our faithful customers for your loyal support over the years.

But this is not the end of our story. You can still order books from us over the phone after 31 July. The number to ring will be 0116 272 0005 and you can collect your books at the same location. The new owners, Mustard, will be happy to hand over ordered books. And our classes are continuing on the first floor.

If you are concerned that your child is not making progress in learning to read and spell, do not hesitate to contact us on 0116 2720005.

Our classes run concurrently with the school term for Leicestershire.

Classes are now finishing for the summer term on 15 July 2017 but we are able to offer assessments throughout the summer holiday to children whose parents are considering entering them for our classes. Contact 0116 2720005 to book an assessment. We re-open on Tuesday 29 August 2017
