CHALK Preschool Online, a recently launched online preschool for kids, received notice from prominent media outlet The Huffington Post.
The Huffington Post (40.9 million unique visitors per month) ran “How to Prepare Your Child for Preschool” from CHALK Preschool director April Schafer. The piece included such tips as creating teachable moments, involving your child in social situations and allowing your child to gain some independence (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/april-schafer/preschool_b_2793230.html).
About CHALK Preschool Online
CHALK Preschool Online is an innovative educational system with an online preschool curriculum that allows any child to begin their learning journey regardless of their location. The welcoming environment is one in which creativity abounds and children thrive with a hands-on educational experience that incorporates art, laughter and the imparting of knowledge, all in a safe and inspirational online preschool setting.
CHALK Preschool was founded in Chicago in 2005. The success of its initial six schools resulted in a nation-wide demand for more locations. The online version, which embodies the successful curriculum of the brick-and-mortar schools, was created to accommodate the requests and furnish a full-scale, user-friendly mobile learning experience.
CHALK Preschool Online emulates the classroom setting with vibrant videos to engage children. With over 8,000 videos exclusively produced for the program, every day of the week provides a new step in a continuing educational journey. Motor skills are encouraged by dancing along to original songs that reflect the learning standards. Core subjects are introduced and then re-enforced through developmentally appropriate, hands-on activities. The daily calendar is structured into a complete school day with multiple lessons in literacy, math, science and art. And lessons become a breeze with CHALK’s materials checklist. The structure of the program simplifies life for busy parents giving them the flexibility to work with their children as time permits – and through screen share it also allows for out-of-state grandparents or loved ones serving oversees to participate.
Parents often feel lost in how to best raise their children. No one wants to ignore their child or stick them in front of a television with virtually no educational benefit. It’s CHALK’s intention to get parents involved, to allow them to have fun, and to encourage them to do so while learning. CHALK believes that children experience awe and wonder every day and that any moment can be turned into a teachable moment.
CHALK Preschool Online can be used as a stand-alone alternative for a fraction of the cost or as a supplement to a formal preschool education.
