ABCmouse.com Case Study: Using Early Learning Technology to Prepare Head Start Families for Kindergarten

Children that have access to high-quality early education learning experiences have been shown to be better prepared for kindergarten and subsequently more successful in school. As part of our ongoing efforts to support such experiences for young children, Age of Learning partnered with the Albina Head Start program in Portland, Oregon, which provides educational services to hundreds of underserved families, to offer children free access to ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy. This case study shows that the more ABCmouse was used in classrooms during the school year, the better prepared those students were for kindergarten. Teachers also found that ABCmouse helped engage families and fostered a meaningful classroom-to-home connection.

Age of Learning Celebrates 50 Years of Head Start

Age of Learning and Head Start share a commitment to helping every child learn, regardless of their family’s financial circumstances. That’s why we have been a consistent supporter of Head Start, offering free access to our complete, award-winning ABCmouse.com curriculum for all Head Start programs, and serving thousands of Head Start classrooms to date.

Age of Learning was recently a proud sponsor at the 2015 National Head Start Association conference in Washington, D.C., which celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Head Start program. Dr. Rebecca Palacios, Senior Curriculum Advisor at Age of Learning, was invited to address the more than 5,000 people attending the conference. Speaking prior to Cornell Brooks, President and CEO of the NAACP, and “father of Head Start” Edward Zigler, Dr. Palacios delivered personal and inspirational words that resonated with the large audience of Head Start Directors, teachers, and other supporters.

1 Billion and Counting

I am delighted to share my thoughts about a major milestone that we recently celebrated at Age of Learning, when a five-year-old boy in Tennessee completed a mathematics learning activity on ABCmouse.com called Ring It Up.

Why is that worth noting? Because it was the 1,000,000,000th learning activity completed on ABCmouse.com. Yes, that’s one billion with a b.

That’s a big number, but what’s most important is what it represents. Ever since we launched ABCmouse.com, our goal has been to help children learn. More specifically, we set out to “help children build a strong foundation for future academic success.” And our commitment to that goal is stronger than ever—we are hard at work expanding our curriculum and creating new ways to “Bring Learning to Life” for children throughout the U.S. and around the world.

ABCmouse.com Case Study: An Effective Digital Learning Resource Can Significantly Improve Motivation, Engagement, and Self-Confidence

This case study focuses on two families with children at different stages of development. After finding numerous education websites and apps ineffective, both families turned to ABCmouse.com because of its comprehensive academic curriculum and found the outcomes they had been seeking. Both families discovered that the benefits of using ABCmouse.com transcended academics and contributed to major gains they hadn’t anticipated, but eagerly welcomed, in their children’s approaches to learning, including motivation, focus, engagement, and self-confidence as learners. The families’ experiences echo the results of a comprehensive 2014 survey of nearly 5,000 parents with children using ABCmouse.com, also cited in this case study.
