Teacher support and implementation services maximize the educational impact of the curriculum in the classroom and at home

Age of Learning has launched ABCmouse for Schools, a scalable solution to meet the pre-K through 2nd grade needs of school districts and school groups in the U.S. and internationally.

ABCmouse for Schools builds on the company’s Early Learning Academy, a digital education resource for early learners. Available on computers, tablets, and smartphones, ABCmouse is used in more than 65,000 U.S. classrooms and in more than one third of all U.S. public libraries.

ABCmouse for Schools offers two solutions for pre-K through 2nd grade: ABCmouse Early Learning Academy, a supplemental curriculum that builds a strong foundation for academic success across subject areas required for 3rd grade readiness; and the new ABCmouse English Language Learning Academy, which can be used by teachers as a core program or as a supplemental resource to provide a developmentally appropriate English language immersion experience.

ABCmouse for Schools complements these curriculum offerings with student management, professional development, curriculum alignment, and progress reporting tools. Uniquely, these products also offer home access versions that are designed specifically to engage children in learning outside of the classroom while strengthening the school-home connection that has been proven to improve student outcomes.

“ABCmouse is already a trusted early learning program for more than 65,000 classroom teachers,” explained David Samuelson, Age of Learning’s Head of Global Schools. “However, district-level educators have asked for additional features to support implementation of this highly effective supplemental curriculum across all of their early elementary classrooms, with the goal of ensuring that all of their younger students become truly 3rd-grade-ready. To meet this critical need, we spent more than a year developing the suite of ABCmouse for Schools tools and resources, based on feedback from teachers around the country and globally along with guidance from our Curriculum Board and Advisors.”
