Children’s Centers. “We believe this additional interactive learning tool will be a terrific supplement to our BRAVO! curriculum. Offering a fun, new, responsible use of technology further sets us apart from our competitors.”
The Kid Orange Tech/ABCmouse.com solution is designed for preschool through kindergarten students and offers over 3,500 fun, compelling learn-at-your-own-pace activities for use in school and at home. With focuses on reading, math, science, social studies, art and music, ABCmouse.com offers a way for children to interact with technology while learning foundational skills, experimenting with cause and effect, and collaborating with classmates.

The family-owned company has been a leader in education-based child care for over 20 years and grown its ‘Doodle Community’ to more than 2,000 families in Upstate New York and Pennsylvania.
According to Insinna, select faculty members are now taking advantage of ABCmouse.com training opportunities and all team members will participate in ongoing professional development over the summer. Beginning in September, all preschool and pre-k classrooms at Doodle Bugs! will adopt the new technology curriculum and parents will have the ability to utilize the service at home.

About Kid Orange Tech
Kid Orange Tech provides educational solutions for 21st century kids by supporting educators and parents in implementing technology responsibly into children's lives. We believe technology has the ability to enrich a child's life when used as an additional learning tool and is not intended to replace traditional play or an existing school curriculum. The most powerful use of technology for children is when it is used to connect educators and parents to easily communicate learning goals so that a parent can reinforce what is being taught in school.
