Today at the 2014 American Library Association Annual Conference, Age of Learning, Inc. launched ABCmouse.com® for Libraries™, a fully featured, free-for-libraries version of ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy, its award-winning online curriculum used by millions of children.
ABCmouse.com for Libraries gives children free access through all of the 16,000 U.S. public libraries to the leading and most comprehensive online learning resource for children ages 2 through 6+. Since the American Library Association reports that there are more than 300 million sessions annually on Internet-connected computers at U.S. public libraries, this initiative will significantly increase families’ ability to access and use this valuable curriculum resource.
This is the latest in a series of Age of Learning’s Education Access Initiatives, including ABCmouse.com for Schools and ABCmouse.com for Head Start, which make this high-quality early learning resource available at no cost to children, regardless of their families’ circumstances.
Winner of numerous awards from national education, parent, and media organizations, ABCmouse.com offers a highly engaging, expert-designed curriculum for preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, and beyond. With more than 3,500 individual learning activities and 450 lessons, ABCmouse.com for Libraries encompasses reading and language arts, math, science, social studies, art, and music, to help children build a strong foundation for academic success.
“Age of Learning is committed to helping every child learn, and our latest Education Access Initiative—ABCmouse.com for Libraries—is a major step in that effort,” said Zachary Katz, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development at Age of Learning. “For the millions of families without a computer or broadband Internet at home, the local public library may be the only place they can access high-quality online learning resources like ABCmouse.com.”
Already available to more than 140 library branches around the country in its pilot phase, including all Los Angeles Public Library and Brooklyn Public Library branches, ABCmouse.com for Libraries makes it quick and easy for any public library to create a free account. Once a library account is created, anyone who visits www.ABCmouse.com from the library can access the ABCmouse.com online curriculum.
ABCmouse.com for Libraries offers a safe, Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)-compliant, 100 percent educational environment for children, with no advertising or links to external websites. Parents also can create a personal account at the library to enable their children to customize their experiences and save their progress on ABCmouse.com’s Step-by-Step Learning Path™.
ABCmouse.com for Libraries is available to all U.S. public libraries free of charge at www.ABCmouse.com/libraries.
