We are thrilled to officially announce that more than 20 million children worldwide have completed more than 4 billion learning activities on ABCmouse, the leading digital education program for children. With each child completing an average of more than 180 expert-designed games, books, learning animations, puzzles, and other learning activities, ABCmouse is providing substantive learning experiences at scale across all major academic subjects – reading, math, science, social studies, health, and more.
Reaching this 4-billion milestone demonstrates the power of highly engaging educational activities to bring learning to life for children. It also represents a meaningful contribution to improving educational outcomes at scale. A growing body of research assessing ABCmouse’s effectiveness shows that the program accelerates learning and helps children make significant gains in early literacy and math skills, with as little as 45 minutes of usage or 15 learning activities completed per week.
Developed by education experts and launched in 2010, ABCmouse is the leading and most comprehensive digital learning resource for children ages 2–8 and has won numerous top awards from education, parent, and media organizations. With a research-validated curriculum for preschool, pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and 1st and 2nd grades, ABCmouse has more than 10,000 individual learning activities. ABCmouse is available to families on a low-cost subscription basis for use on computers, tablets, and smartphones.
To support children who are furthest from opportunity, Age of Learning makes ABCmouse available for free in classrooms, public libraries, public housing authorities, and other community centers. Cumulatively, these initiatives have helped educate more than 6 million children across all 50 states, at no cost to families, teachers, or libraries.
“From the beginning, we have strived to help educate children everywhere by making high-quality learning easily accessible to families and educators,” said Doug Dohring, CEO and co-founder of Age of Learning. “We are thrilled to see so many kids engaging with ABCmouse in a meaningful way. We couldn’t be more excited to build on this milestone as we continue to enhance and expand our educational programs.”
ABCmouse is available at www.ABCmouse.com and on all major smartphones and tablets via the Apple App Store, Google Play, or Amazon Appstore.
