Our preschool(and we have since bought it for home) uses Reading Eggs It's inexpensive, keeps the kids occupied and works well, Our 3 year old reads and plays all the games our 5 year old does, so she is far advanced, and our 5 year old is doing the 3rd grade games with relative ease.

You might want to try out an 8 level program I found at http://BeginToLearn.net which is based on research about how children learn to read. The programs builds systematically from letters to sounds, then to words and sentences, and ultimately to reading fluency. It is developed by leading educators, award-winning authors and illustrators, teachers, and parents. At the moment there is a free trial.

Starfall looks good - did you try it out?



We've also used http://rewardingreading.com/ (my daughter thinks of it as a game and she asks to log on every day!) and http://headstartforkids.net/ for reading together and more focused 'tangible' activities.



Are there any other good similar programmes that people can recommend?

I would have to agree with Nancy and Kate.  These are all great programs that kids really enjoy.  One of our favorites is at Help To Read.  It's really geared toward utilizing phonics to help kids learn to read.
