Our mission at Age of Learning is simple: helping children everywhere build a strong foundation for academic success and foster a lifelong love of learning. And we measure progress by our ability to increase learning outcomes for all children, particularly those who are furthest from opportunity.
Children from low-income families begin to fall behind their peers in vocabulary development before they’re even two years old. By the time they reach fourth grade, 80 percent of these children are not proficient readers (Source: Campaign for Grade-Level Reading). This learning deficit has long-term effects on children’s academic future, including their likelihood of graduating from high school.
To help address this challenge, Age of Learning has developed a set of Education Access Initiatives to make our educational programs available for free to children whose families may not be able to afford a subscription.
Learn more about the progress of these initiatives here on the Age of Learning blog.
