In July 2015, Age of Learning joined the ConnectHome initiative, pledging to make ABCmouse available to families living in public housing in 27 cities and one tribal nation. We have since expanded this pledge by making ABCmouse available to all U.S. public housing authorities in their computer rooms.
As part of our commitment, we also provide webinars and training sessions for public housing staff and kits with printed materials including, flyers, posters, table tents, and monitor placards to inform families that ABCmouse is available.
Why We’re Involved in ConnectHome Nation
ConnectHome Nation participation marks another step in Age of Learning’s ongoing effort to make high-quality learning resources available to all children, regardless of their circumstances. Partnering with ConnectHome Nation helps us serve more children across the U.S. in need of these resources.

This study examined the impact of ABCmouse Early Learning Academy on summer learning loss (known as “summer slide”) in a diverse sample of 999 rising first graders.
Results showed that ABCmouse helped prevent summer slide in reading for students who regularly used ABCmouse for at least 70 minutes per week over the summer. Students who met this usage threshold demonstrated literacy gains equivalent to the benefits of one month of academic instruction, while children who scored below the median at the beginning of the study experienced even greater gains from using ABCmouse.
I’m pleased to announce a significant milestone for Age of Learning and our ABCmouse.com® Early Learning Academy: 2,000,000,000 ABCmouse learning activities have been completed by young children. Pretty amazing–two BILLION.
That’s an average of almost 200 learning activities each for the more than 10 million children who have enjoyed and learned from ABCmouse since it launched in November 2010.
I am also confident that these are more than just big numbers.
Research shows that the more ABCmouse learning activities children complete, the greater the educational impact. That’s because every learning activity is designed to achieve specific curriculum objectives that contribute to a strong academic foundation for every child.
