JumpStart Launches JumpStart Academy Home for Early Learners

Award-Winning & Trusted Brand Provides a Learning Edge for Preschool and Kindergarten Children


GARDENA, CALIFORNIA - January 15, 2019 - JumpStart, the leader in learning-based games for children, announces the first release of its JumpStart Academy consumer education products – Jumpstart Academy Preschool and JumpStart Academy Kindergarten, which provide early learners with a personalized educational experience to enhance their academic careers at home and on the go. Following up on the launch of JumpStart Academy Math for schools this past Fall, now JumpStart Academy educational games are available for preschoolers and kindergarteners.


This brand, trusted by millions of parents for over twenty-five years, empowers parents to guide their children's educational experiences before they enter a formal academic setting and helps ease the transition to school with today’s technology. With engaging games created specifically for early learners by elementary curriculum experts, JumpStart Academy combines guided content, adorable JumpStart characters and an endless variety of play-to-learn educational activities that provide a learning edge in reading, writing, math, science, and social science that build the essential skills for 3 to 6 year olds.


“Our first consumer educational products under the JumpStart Academy brand are specifically designed to embrace individual learning styles, build self-confidence, and promote creativity and self-expression,” notes Jim Czulewicz, CEO of JumpStart. “JumpStart Academy is a brand that has been built for children, parents and teachers. The key to a successful academic journey is to engage children at a young age by including parents and providing great content. Our games provide endless fun so children are focused on playing - while they learn. Nothing is more critical to a child’s learning path than the involvement of their parents in the academic experience.”


There are many preschool and early learning apps on the market that cater to reading and math, but JumpStart Academy has refined the art of engaging children while they learn. We have made our games available on all devices so children can play and learn whenever and wherever they are. Our products offer countless opportunities for children to personalize their experience so they stay engaged with the content and master new lessons every time they play,” enthuses Shannon Johnson, JumpStart Academy Brand Manager. “Parents can easily monitor how their child is progressing throughout the game in the parent’s portal and can assist with any gaps in their understanding to keep their children on track. The best learning environment for young children is safe, features great content, and provides tools that are simple and fun to use so learning becomes a breeze.”
