Customer Feedback for ABCmouse: February 2017

All of us at Age of Learning, Inc., were once again humbled by the amazing messages of thanks and encouragement we received from families and teachers using ABCmouse. To date, we’ve received almost 3 million (2,998,721 to be exact). Here are a few from the past month that I’d like to share.

Thank you so much for adding second grade levels 9 and 10! I am so excited! I was overwhelmed with the thought of finding my daughter a different curriculum after she completed level 8. I love this program. It is engaging, and the printables, plus all the lessons, are amazing.

This is great! … And since this is a low income area that our school is in, I am so excited to share this awesome resource with the families to use at home. I have heard great things about it and of course all the commercials. So happy it is FREE for teachers!

—Pre-k and kindergarten teacher in Columbus, OH

I’m very smart. And I’m 7 years old. I love this site. It’s very good for children like me—and other kids.

—7-year-old in Chicago, IL

I think that this is the BEST SITE EVER! My 5-year-old has learned so much from this site. Right now she is in the honors reading group reading on a high first grade level. My 7-year-old old has brought up her reading level, and since math isn’t her best subject, ABCmouse has been that extra study guide for her. She is doing so well. THANK YOU!

—Mother of two in Arlington, VA

I am so thrilled to have found this amazing site! I tell everyone I know who has children—or even those who do not have children—that ABCmouse.com will change the way the world learns.

—Preschool teacher in Honolulu, HI

My son has a learning disability and has been using your site for 3 years. He is now 6 and despite his learning disability he is well above par and top of his class and just LOVES to learn! I ‘blame’ ABCmouse for ensuring my son does so well and loves learning so much. He is a genius, and the best decision I could have ever made for him was to sign him up for your site.

An excellent resource!!! I just love it. The animation really engages the students!!

—Kindergarten/1st grade teacher in Beaumont-Port Arthur, TX

I just want to give a shout out as to how much our family LOVES ABCmouse! We homeschool our kids and it is an excellent program for some extra enrichment! My kids compete over how many tickets they can earn to ‘buy new pets.’ And they enjoy all the activities. My youngest son has learning disabilities, has had more than one brain surgery, and also has some vision problems, and ABCmouse has helped to break the barrier with him and keep learning fun! Thank you!!!!!!

—ABCmouse family

We love it. All of my children and I love and use ABCmouse all the time. We refer everyone who has young children to also use ABCmouse. The kids can play on here for hours and it’s 100% educational. Their grades are up and improved, along with reading ability and sight words. Thank you ABCmouse.

Final ABCmouse Customer Feedback for 2016

For the first of my blog posts of the new year, I’d like to close out 2016 with a brief compilation of parent and teacher (and sibling) feedback that we received about our ABCmouse Early Learning Academy in December. Here’s to another year of learning. – Doug Dohring

I am 8. I have a sister who is 5 and a brother who is 2. This website is a miracle. Two weeks after we joined, my sister was the smartest in her class and my brother learned his ABCs.

 – 8-year-old big sister in Los Angeles, CA

Love it!!! Thanks for providing this to teachers. We are seeing more children coming to kindergarten with fewer skills. This site helps so much. 

– Kindergarten teacher in Columbia, MO

My son loves when he can take tests like his older siblings. He enjoys all the music. He is very excited to earn tickets. I love that he is learning by having fun. He can do it all by himself, too! 

 – Mother of 4-, 6-, and 9-year-old children

My youngest has hearing and attention problems. She played with ABCmouse all the time. I was so afraid that she wouldn’t keep up in kindergarten, but she has excelled. Unbelievable! She knows so much more than others in her class: shapes, sounds, letter sounds, numbers; I could go on and on. Thank you so much ABCmouse!

– Mother of an 8-year-old girl in Tucson, AZ

I enjoy the updated curriculum! The science section with Professor Hester is informative and fun, and the Literacy & Math sections have wonderfully challenging games for our class. 

– 1st grade teacher

My son is showing marked improvement when he uses ABCmouse, and we love the curriculum and the app.

 – Mother of a 1st-grade boy in New York, NY

I would like to thank you for the years that we have used the site and have been extremely happy with all that our children have learned as well as shared our love of the site with family and friends! Thank you!

 – Mother in Philadelphia PA

I have been using this website for my son since he was 2 years old and now he is 5 and he loves it just the same! This is the greatest ever to help your child(ren) learn!

Martin Luther King On Education

In honor of Martin Luther King Day, I offer you some of the great civil rights leader’s quotes about education:Martin Luther King - I have a dream stamp

“We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education. The complete education gives one not only power of concentration, but worthy objectives upon which to concentrate. ”

“I said to my children, ‘I’m going to work and do everything that I can do to see that you get a good education. I don’t ever want you to forget that there are millions of God’s children who will not and cannot get a good education, and I don’t want you feeling that you are better than they are. For you will never be what you ought to be until they are what they ought to be.”

“I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture of their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.”

“Let us be dissatisfied until the dark yesterdays of segregated schools will be
transformed into the bright tomorrows of quality integrated education.”

“It seems to me that education has a two-fold function to perform in the life of man and in society: the one is utility and the other is culture. Education must enable a man to become more efficient, to achieve with increasing facility the legitimate goals of his life.”

“To save man from the morass of propaganda, in my opinion, is one of the chief aims of education. Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from the fiction.”

“The function of education, therefore, is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. But education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals.”
