If you have a child between the ages of 0 and 6, the Earlybird is the only app you need to help you make sense of these early years. The Earlybird app gives you the confidence and knowledge you need to give your kid the strong start they deserve. Inside the app, you will find parenting tips, workshop content, articles, and play ideas to build your child’s intellectual, physical, social, and emotional skills so that you have happy, confident, smart kids who can manage their own feelings and build healthy relationships with others.
0-6Your child starts learning, growing, and developing the second they’re born. You are your child’s first teacher, and we have parenting tips, workshops, and play ideas for you right from the start.
Independent play skills are every parent's dream. And the Earlybird app will help you keep your kids busy (and learning) while you drink your coffee hot. But just like learning to walk, all these developmental skills take time to learn. You can expect to do the same sort of activity with your kids 5-8 times before they start to show some independence with it. This is why we (and the research) recommend doing 15 minutes of mindful play time per day so that you can build and teach all the skills your kids need. All kids learn and grow at their own pace. However, if you use our milestone checklist and feel your kid may need some support, don’t hesitate to reach out to your doctor.
No. In most provincial or state curriculums, knowing all your letters isn’t even a requirement for the *end* of kindergarten. Your job as a parent is to expose your child to new ideas by providing them with rich learning materials and giving them time and space to explore them playfully. Thankfully we can help you with both the materials and the playful ideas. Their kindergarten teachers will take it from there and meet them wherever they are.
0-5Learning starts are birth with you as a child’s first teacher, and we have resources and ideas for you for those early days.That being said kids are ready to begin deeply engaging in the world around them when they start exhibiting the motor milestones of supported sitting, reaching and grasping. This typically begins around 6 months of age, and is when real activities can start being done.
No. The early years are exploratory, and research shows that the richest learning occurs during positive, face-to-face interactions with caregivers. That is why we give you a suggested starting point but we emphasize age doesn’t really matter for each of our activities. Those activities geared toward older children can often be co-created with a caregiver much earlier than our suggested age. So get your 8 month old exploring those paints! Similarly, older students will enjoy visiting activities aimed toward younger children as they approach them now with increased confidence and independence.
Things you probably already have! Each Earlybird activity can be done with a combination of household items, the toys you already have, your recycling, and standard craft supplies (which you can affordably thrift or buy from any dollar store). Our goal at Earlybird is to make early learning accessible to everyone, even the busiest parents among us, with no fancy or expensive materials required.
