Across the country, Canadian families are feeling the effects of COVID-19 school closures. In some provinces, schools have been closed indefinitely, prompting many parents to seek credible learning resources that have been designed with them in mind.
In response, today Sprig Learning is launching Sprig Home, a curriculum-aligned, at-home version of its classroom-based oral language learning program for early learners that shows parents how to enrich the simple things they do, each and every day, to help foster their child’s learning.
Sprig Home will be available at no cost for the duration of school closures. Allan Gauld, Sprig’s VP of Business Development states, “We believe this investment is the right thing to do at this time. We are making Sprig Home available with no credit card information required. We are not selling your data, or collecting your personal information. It’s free to use, with no catch, and is for all Canadians.”
With the launch of Sprig Home, parents have free access to high-quality learning resources for children aged three to six. Since Sprig Home is a derivative of Sprig Language, Sprig’s oral language learning program, parents can ensure that the activities they do at home with their kids not only support learning, but meet school curricular outcomes as well.
“Parents are vital to their child’s learning, especially in the early years,” says Maureen Taylor – Sprig’s Strategic Advisor, Learning & Governance. “My 30 years experience as an educator shows that when parents are active in their child’s learning this drastically increases their success in education.”
The learning activities in Sprig Home encourage storytelling, cooking, playing board games, reading, counting, singing and rhyming. Time spent at home engaged in these activities provides the foundational literacy skills that builds confident learners.
