New digital resource launched for preschool learning
Ohio’s parents and educators have a new resource to help learners ages 3-5 prepare for school and their futures. The easy-to-navigate INFOhio Early Learning Portal contains more than 50 websites and apps chosen and evaluated by educators and librarians with expertise in early learning and literacy.
The INFOhio Early Learning Portal helps preschool children:
- Learn letters, numbers and basic knowledge;
- Interact with other children and adults;
- Engage in meaningful play; and
- Develop focus and problem-solving skills.
Each resource supports Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards
for school readiness. Parents and educators also will find tips on integrating appropriate technology into preschool children’s learning. Adults can join children in using the digital resources when they play games, watch videos, or read and listen to e-books.
The INFOhio Early Learning Portal is a partnership of INFOhio
, the Ohio Department of Education
, Ohio Department of Job and Family Services
and the Office of Gov. John Kasich
. Nearly all resources in the portal are free, with a few available for a minimal fee.
