Learning with Earlybird

Even a basic understanding of early childhood development will help to make your parental journey feel less overwhelming and more enjoyable.


We’ve packed a lot into these lessons because we know how busy you are. So do as much (or as little) at a pace that works for you.


Make real progress by learning and doing with your kids. We include PDF downloads of low-prep activities and shopping lists of our favorite books and materials.


We’re parents too. But Renee Jordan is also a teacher and studied educational psychology at Columbia University. She's also a former teacher and mother of two young kiddos.

Teacher & Author

“I’m obsessed with the Earlybird platform. It is built beautifully, and everything is so easy to do. It’s my go-to when I justneed to keep them busy for a while.”


“I just signed up and I’m excited. We are homeschooling this year so I need all the Earlybird tools. It is making the early years really make sense.”

Meet Renee Jordan

Hi, I’m Renee, one of the founders of Earlybird. I am a mother, teacher, and curriculum designer with a Masters in educational psychology from Columbia University.

I have worked with families across North America, conducting learning assessments and devising learning plans. I have seen firsthand how many children are starting school behind in core developmental domains, and I know this doesn’t need to happen.

There are many reasons why children don’t have access to rich, learning experiences that are so critical in the early years, but I am committed to ensuring all kids have the strong start they deserve and empowering you to do your part in raising good kids.
