Kiddie Academy®, a national education-based child care franchisor, announced today the launch of its eLearning platform, providing enhanced online learning experiences for children and their families. The Kiddie Academy eLearning platform was developed in partnership with BASCOM Global Internet Services and provides a safe and convenient online library of age-appropriate educational websites and parenting resources that have been screened and approved by certified educators.
“We recognize that successful learning begins in the classroom and continues at home,” said Bill Endres, chief operations officer of Kiddie Academy. “This new eLearning platform helps to accomplish this by providing our families with a safe online learning destination that reinforces the lessons being taught in our academy classrooms.”
For example, as a Kiddie Academy class works on math curriculum, the children will be encouraged to log onto the eLearning platform from home to access online counting and math skills games that reinforce and supplement the lessons being taught in the classroom.
The Kiddie Academy eLearning platform provides access to a safer Internet search engine, composed of websites selected and evaluated by educators for their safe, educational content and appropriateness. Websites on the Kiddie Academy eLearning platform are organized into nine categories that correspond with the different topic areas covered in the Kiddie Academy Life Essentials® program, making it easy for parents and children to supplement academy-based learning.
The Kiddie Academy eLearning platform is available to families with children at participating Kiddie Academy locations.
