Our Learning Kits

1 Starter

Get your little one started on the path of early learning! Introduce them to colors, counting, and the alphabet with our comprehensive Starter Kit. Our Playgarden Prep students love to learn with these classroom favorites! With custom songs, printouts, and other tools, there are many ways to learn with each toy.

2 Color

Children learn so much about the world through colors! This vibrant kit introduces primary and secondary colors—as well as the colors of the rainbow—through matching, sorting, and pattern work. Little ones love to learn with our beautiful Color Kit!

3 Art

Creativity is instinctive in young children, and essential for development. Our Art Kit encourages little ones to learn with color matching and sorting, while also building fine motor skills by using their imagination.

4 Math

Little ones require hands-on learning to understand basic math concepts. Our Math Kit explores early math concepts in a fun and engaging way, to inspire an early love of math that will stay with them for their whole lives!

5 Language

Introduce the alphabet, phonics, and new vocabulary with our Language Kit, which encourages learning through play! Play and language are interconnected, and building language skills can be fun and easy with the right tools.

6 Shape

Our Shape Kit introduces basic and advanced shapes. Little ones love matching, sorting, and identifying shapes with the guidance of our teacher-led videos!

Ready to start learning?

Why should you try our Learning Kits?

After 2 years of Pandemic restrictions, multiple studies, and our own experience with the incoming classes in our preschools, we have seen that toddlers need more support in multiple areas, such as socializing, playing together and even language and fine motor skills. Little ones are not only very resilient but they catch up really quickly, it’s just a matter of giving them some extra support. We’ve included many of the activities, songs and lessons that we’ve seen work best in each of our learning kits. Can’t wait for you to try them!

Miss Ally

Our kits help children find their personality. Who would they want to be. All children learn differently and play differently. That’s why we provide different videos with different teachers and our platform learns what children like or dislike to give each little one a personalized experience.

Miss Regina

At our schools, we love helping children increase their well-being and social/emotional development. I believe that positive psychology’s main pillars—to enhance positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning, and accomplishments, or PERMA fits well with this goal, which is why we’ve included many of my lessons in support of these subjects in the Learning Kit program.

Miss Carolyn

Reading not only allows children to improve their vocabulary, but also to understand various emotions. Children learn to associate feelings with words and find a way to express themselves.
Reading together is a great way to improve a child’s development and to generate special moments that will last a lifetime. We’ve curated a list of books that build on the content of each learning kit but that are also fun, interesting and relevant. Most of them are favorites in our classrooms.
