All children deserve a strong foundation for success in school and beyond.
Bring Learning to All partners with community organizations and social impact investors to help children succeed in school and beyond. With strong partners and proven results on learning outcomes, we give families and communities the educational resources they need for children to thrive.
Globally, hundreds of millions of children lack the educational resources they need to thrive.
With the power of digital technology, high-quality learning can now happen anytime, anywhere. Combining effective digital learning with family engagement and community outreach helps children build a strong foundation for their future in the 21st century.
Too many children in low-income communities lack the educational resources they need to thrive.
In the United States, economically advantaged 6 th graders have spent an average of 6,000 more hours learning outside of school than their peers in low-income families.*
Children with less access to early learning resources are less likely to be prepared for school.
Less than half of 5-year-olds from low-income households are ready for kindergarten, compared to three-fourths of their more affluent peers.**
Globally, most children are not meeting basic academic standards.
56% of kids are not proficient in math, and 58% are not proficient in reading.***

Bring Learning to All children

Give children access to effective learning resources that will build a strong foundation for their future.

Bring Learning to All includes three key components:
In partnership with community organizations and social impact investors, Age of Learning provides its educational programs—including ABCmouse and ReadingIQ—to communities along with implementation, training, ongoing support, and reporting to ensure success.
