Our Education Access Initiatives

Reflecting our commitment to help children everywhere build a strong foundation for academic success, Age of Learning’s Education Access Initiatives reach millions of children by offering the full award-winning ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy curriculum at no cost to teachers and community institutions such as libraries, Head Start programs, and community centers—including public housing authorities and after-school programs.

In December 2014, as part of the White House Invest In US initiative, Age of Learning pledged to provide ABCmouse for free to every preschool, pre-k, Head Start, and early elementary school teacher in the U.S. over the next two years, with a value expected to exceed $10 million.

Additionally, Age of Learning is a partner in the White House ConnectHome initiative to increase access to digital learning and information resources to families across the country. As a partner in this pilot program, Age of Learning announced in July 2015 that it will make ABCmouse available for free to families living in public housing in 27 cities and one tribal nation, serving up to 65,000 children ages 2–7 each year. ABCmouse will be made available on computers and tablets through a wide range of access points, including computer rooms and community centers in and near public housing facilities.

Age of Learning believes in giving back to classroom elementary teachers, so we offer free ABCmouse for Teachers accounts to teachers for use with their students in licensed public or private schools throughout the U.S. ABCmouse for Teachers also enables teachers to create and assign individualized lessons from our standards-based curriculum, which students can access at home through free, basic ABCmouse accounts. More than 65,000 teachers currently use ABCmouse in their classrooms on a regular basis. Learn more…
