ABCMouse Review and Giveaway

As a certified early childhood education teacher and former Center Director of a local children’s center, I feel passionate that a strong educational foundation is key in preparing children to enter formal schooling. Now, as a work at home mother to a toddler, I am more interested than ever in resources that are available for parents to use at home to help encourage a love for learning at an early age.

Why I LOVE ABCMouse.com

As a certified teacher, I value education and hope to instill a love for learning in my son. During our time at home together, I want to prepare him educationally before he begins a preschool program in the near future. ABCMouse is the perfect resource for any parent or teacher that is looking to find a safe, engaging, and exciting method for children to use technology for educational development.

These days, technology is such an important part of our everyday lives. Before my son even said his first word, he was already holding my iPhone and pretending to babble away. That being said, when my son is using my computer or the iPad, I want it to be for educational purposes. ABCMouse is wonderful because it provides both a fun and educational way for children to use the computer.

If you’re anything like me, safety is one of your main concerns when your child is using the internet. With so many websites sharing a multitude of advertisements and links to other pages, it can be difficult to be sure your child isn’t clicking on things that might not be safe or appropriate. Because ABCMouse.com is subscription based, it’s advertisement and link free! YAY! For me, that piece of mind is definitely worth the cost of the subscription (which is $7.95/month or $79.00/year).

Lastly, as a busy working mother, my time is extremely limited. Finding an opportunity to sit down, surf the internet, or download applications on the iPad that are safe and educational can be difficult. In my experience, I have found that many of the “free” apps that I download on the iPad only offer very limited features and require you to purchase in order to try the full version. In addition, children lose interest quickly in games online and often end up clicking onto other sites or advertisements. Luckily, ABCMouse offers over 450 lessons and a multitude of features, all on a safe and secure website. ABCMouse will save me from having to search the net to find games and sites that will both interest my son and that he can use safely.

Here’s a quick recap of some of the features that I LOVE:

  • Six different academic levels and over 450 lessons available
  • A password protected, and advertisement-free website
  • The design of the website is appealing, exciting, and easy-to-navigate
  • A Parent Homepage with a lesson builder that allows parents the option to choose activities that they know their children will enjoy
  • Progress Tracking that allows parents to see which activities their children have completed and the progress they have made
  • Provides a one stop site for your child’s early childhood education needs
  • An excellent method to incorporate technology into your young child’s life in a safe and exciting way

      Melissa – I know! I’m generally skeptical of websites/programs that claim to be educational and end up being kind of a gimmick, but I found ABCMouse to be a really great program. The children I nanny for during the day LOVED it. They are totally hooked.

  4. Thank you for the giveaway … I would love to win this for my daughter Reagan!

  5. ABC mouse has alot of great potential but from what my wife and i have noticed is all the great activities that are advertised on TV are not available one the site. Math is one of the main reasons my wife and i signed up but it doesn’t work. All you get is a notification that they are working on getting the new site up and running. Sesame Street abc is much better. It’s basically the same program but less money.

  6. How do you add another child?
