Anyone aware of Alphabet Babies

Just wondering if anyone has heard of Alphabet Babies? They have just secured a six figure investment.

Alphabet Juniors is more than a phonics programme. It is a complete language, literacy and communication programme. It will complement and build upon your existing work.
My alarm bells started to ring when I read that: 'Children have different learning styles'

They are based in Scotland but marketed to both English and Scottish markets.

I've just been looking at their video. About 40 odd seconds in you can see an alphabet chart. One of the spellings on it G g with a picture of a guitar. Presumably the <u> is silent!! :lol: But, given that they say it's taken four years to write, you'd think they'd have used 'goat' or 'glass', something. I wonder if the rest of the prog is as badly thought through as this example.

Thank you for taking the time to have a look John - just confirms my fears... all info well hidden behind subscription service - and programme last two years... what a lot of money for schools / nurseries. :-(
