We are a Victoria Carlton Literacy Centre and we aim to transform how kids read, write and comprehend effectively with our Phonics and STAR programme. Our flagship programme is the Students at Risk Targeted Intervention (STAR) Programme that helps children with reading difficulties to transition from pre-primary to primary school, helping them get ready for the MOE primary school syllabus.

Centrally located at 51 Waterloo Street, Curious Thoughts Academy is run by husband-and-wife team Yao Shuohan and Lydia Lok.
