Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) February 17, 2013
As many CEOs concern themselves only with their company’s bottom line, a spokesman for Children of America Educational Childcare & Academy says his boss is currently traveling from state to state, reading with children and discussing with their parents the importance of embracing new technology in their quests for knowledge.
“In an age that has many CEOs focused only on making money, Children of America CEO Thad Pryor has his littlest learners in mind as he visits schools in different states,” said Jim Perretty, Children of America’s chief operating officer. “Armed with only his iPhone, [Pryor] helps tear children away from video games and television by showing them that all they need is a smartphone or tablet device to continue learning in fun ways outside the classroom.”
A group of children in Chicago this month surrounded Pryor, giggling as the CEO showed them “Bentley” COA Mascot action videos and read from Children of America’s Just Read e-books series.
“Being able to read a fun and engaging book conveniently from a mobile device adds an extra level of ease for parents, making it possible to enjoy reading time on the go and fit it into even the busiest schedules,” Pryor explained. “Children love using the latest technology and technology is part of the classroom experience.”
Children of America’s Just Read e-books series is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers, with the goal of instilling an early love of reading. The e-books can be read from a wide variety of mobile devices including Apple’s iPad and iPad mini, Android devices, Kindle and similar gadgets.

“Learning to read is the foundation for educational success. In traveling to Children of America’s different locations, I hope to personally connect with our youngest learners and inspire a passion and excitement for reading,” Pryor said.
Children of America’s educational programs are geared toward children from 6 weeks to 12 years old. Those interested in enrolling their children or learning more about Children of America Educational Childcare & Academy may call 855-285-6892 or visit http://www.childrenofamerica.com.
