From Glendale, California-based Age of Learning, the original team behind Neopets.com, comes ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy, an educational website developed especially for children ages two through six.
The goal of the website is to help children build a strong foundation by providing educational content that supplements and supports preschool, pre-k and kindergarten programs. Curriculum was developed with education experts and includes early childhood education subjects (reading, math, beginning science, social studies, art and music) accompanied by a rewards system.
The site offers more than 2,000 individual learning activities, including online books, games, songs, puzzles, art activities and printables contained within more than 350 custom lesson plans spanning six academic levels.
Available for US$7.95/month or US$79.00/year, the service will also be offered free to public schools throughout the US and Canada that apply for the program.
The site has no advertising, pop-up ads, or links to other websites, but offers a messaging system through which children can share completed educational lessons and artwork, as well as send and receive audio, video and text messages.
