Itchy's Alphabet should be in every Pre-school and Primary classroom where English is taught.  Our products are very unique (a picture cue in the shape of the letters is the core concept) and we have published research confirming their effectiveness. They were designed by a teacher with many years experience working with at-risk students. Both teachers and children love using them! We offer a complete program which teaches letter sounds, letter formations, beginning blending skills and some basic sight words - the foundation skills for reading success.  French and Spanish programs are available as well, extending the marketing potential significantly.
Our products are of very high quality and are available for sale individually, in sets and as a complete set.
We offer workshops on the program and best practice techniques for teaching letters and sounds.
Facilities:As this is home-based, no significant facilities
Competition:There are a number of phonics-based programs similar to Itchy's Alphabet, but none with as effective a picture cue as ours. Letterland, Zoo Phonics, Jolly Phonics, Letter People, Animated Literacy and Alphafriends are the main ones.
Growth Potential:In North America, alone, there are well over 400,000 classrooms that should be using Itchy's Alphabet. Selling one of our Starter Sets to just 5% of that market would generate almost 2 million dollars. The French and Spanish markets are lucrative as good quality, effective materials are difficult to find. There is a huge pre-school market as more and more school districts are introducing pre-schools into their systems.
Training/Support:I will provide full training and support to get this business up and running successfully. I would like to stay involved in the business in some way - I can continue to do presentations, trade shows and new product development. I am a retired teacher (B. Ed, M. Ed) and have the educational expertise needed to support the business but not the business/marketing experience to grow a successful business.
Sale Reason:this business needs someone with business/marketing background to reach potential
