App Featured in USA Today for Back to School Early Learning AcademyShortly after our Early Learning Academy mobile app (available for iPad and iPhone, and Android tablets and smartphones) was featured on the New York Times website, it also was highlighted in the USA Today article 3 learning apps ease kids back to school, by tech writer and editor Ginny Gudmundsen, who rated the app 3.5 out of 4 stars.

An excerpt from her review:

For families with kids in the age range of 2-7 years, offers a robust sequence of learning activities for a monthly subscription of $7.95 or $79.99/year. Available via a browser on computers or as an app via smart devices, lets parents register up to three children and then set each child’s profile to be at specific learning levels based on their age.  

The main curriculum is presented in a step-by-step program, which offers over 500 lessons filled with more than 6,000 standards-based learning activities. These activities cover reading and writing, math, art, music, social studies and science; and they take the format of videos, coloring activities, learning games, poems, puzzles and songs. Kids can also approach this inviting content outside of the sequential program by simply selecting things from the main menu that appeal to them, such as a visit to a zoo or a farm.

On top of our Tabby Awards in late June, in which Early Learning Academy app was a double winner in the Kids, Family & Entertainment category, it’s been a very successful few months for our mobile early learning efforts. It’s important to us that children have access to comprehensive early learning resources on the mobile devices that are available to them throughout their day. Many thanks to everyone who helped make this possible. App Is Featured for Math & Science Learning

Banners_and_Alerts_and_ABCmouse_com_-_Android_Apps_on_Google_PlayWe were pleased to see that The New York Times’ Motherlode parenting blog featured our Early Learning Academy mobile app (available for iPad and iPhone, and Android tablets and smartphones) in its roundup of the best Apps to Bring Math and Science Skills Back After Summer’s Slide.

The list focused on high-quality apps that “blend the fun and the learning into the same package.” was the only app highlighted in the Early Learning category.

Here’s what the post had to say:

ABCMouse, A “full online curriculum” for ages 2 to 7, it offers very early learning (alphabet, colors, shapes) along with introductory reading and math and even some core curriculum-style basics like literature (Aesop’s Fables), geography and simple science (plants, weather, the planets). At $7.95 a month, ABCMouse is only worth the investment if your child is a regular user (and do set up an alert to remind you to consider that automatic charge on your credit card before it renews monthly). Available online and on iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire (second generation and above) and most Android phones and tablets.
