Saretta designed EDUFRIENDS to fully comply with the National Curriculum Statement and Outcome Based Education. EduFriends provide everything that is needed to comply with the Learning Outcomes and Assessments Standards stated for Mathematics and Reading.

Nowhere in South Africa are there material even close to the total solution being offered by EDUFRIENDS!! Integration
The learning materials are integrated with other learning areas e.g. on the top, left corner of each zigzag book of Reading Friends, the Learning Area, Learning Outcome and Assessment Standard are indicated.
All material begins easy and progressively more vocabulary, concepts, skills, values and attitudes are introduced. Logical and well-planned progression! Consolidation takes place in a variety of ways to keep learners interested.
All Maths task cards are differentiated. Learners sharing a table can do different consolidation work, which will enable teachers to assess the learners progression! You may even create special task cards by just changing some numbers to accommodate more advanced or slower learners.
The same learning materials can be used for Learning Support in other grades. When a learner lacks a solid foundation, the Learning Support Educator must begin with the first set and work through all the sets with the learner. However, if a learner has a small and specific problem the Learning Support educator can simply find and print the relevant material from earlier sets to fill the gaps and give the learner a chance to catch up.
Learning Support has just become exact!!
Thorough development of Knowledge and Skills
Some educational books are restricted in the number of pages that is printed to keep cost low and that inevitably leads to skimping in some areas. EDUFRIENDS does not skimp!! Each Maths, Phonics or Spelling set includes detailed explanations and enough consolidation tasks or games.
