Parents like me really need to know where their kids are on reading skills and building blocks given COVID-19 disruption and learning gaps. EarlyBird did just that.
I’m so in love with the program and the results we are seeing already. It’s amazing! I love it and I’m so happy I found you guys.

I had nobody to compare my child to. And I’m not an educator so it’s extremely overwhelming to do your own research. I don’t know what’s reliable. Thank you EarlyBird for helping me understand what reasonable expectations are for my child.
My child just loves EarlyBird. She is so engaged and loves the little rewards they get after each game.
