We're all about learning here at Nest. Learning is about exploration. With that being said, we know that kids like being online and continuing their learning experiences at home. Each month we choose topics for kids of every age to explore on the internet. If they are going to be online anyway why not incorporate these learning links into your home routine and continue learning beyond the classroom.
Nest is all about learning and making learning fun and engaging. With Learning Links we don't reinvent the wheel; we just bring the best of early childhood learning internet resources to our families in the form of learning links. Our links are an e-learning journey from a collection of third-party resources or "learning links" that correlate to the Learning Link Lesson Plan - free of charge.
With Learning Links, screen time doesn't have to be a way to keep your child occupied but where you can find high-quality educational media. Another way Learning Links is useful is to tie learning and screen time to follow your child's interests by finding learning links to match whatever they are obsessing on at the moment.
Although adults often use media as a babysitter, young children get more out of it when they use it intentionally and with adult-child interaction. Grown-ups, after all, can help them understand what’s going on and make connections to the real world. For example, parents can help by watching with children, talking to them about what they are seeing, and linking it to their everyday lives.
We would love to hear how your children use and enjoy Learning Links so be sure to share your experiences with us. Check in frequently as we add new Learning Links often. Also, be sure to check out our Raising Readers Bookclub for reading recommendations.
