As kids continue to spend more time at home due to distance learning, the early learning company backed by Sesame Workshop, LEGO Ventures and Gymboree Play & Music is here to help. HOMER has just launched a newly reimagined comprehensive learning platform, HOMER Learn & Grow.

Designed for kids ages two to eight, the platform takes kids on a journey through reading, math, social emotional learning, creativity and thinking skills in a playful way. HOMER Learn & Grow is ad-free and safe for kids to use independently.

HOMER’s approach takes an active role in teaching and brings engagement that feels more like entertainment than learning. In fact, HOMER’s reading pathway has been proven to increase early reading score by 74% when kids read 15 minutes per day!

In addition to fun reading activities, the app will offer online and offline features, live virtual small group classes, tips for parents, printables, hands-on activities and more. The new program replaces the HOMER Reading and HOMER Stories apps and offers an expanded curriculum and new content.

HOMER Learn & Grow is now available now in the Apple App Store and will arrive at the Google Play Store soon. Families can sign up for memberships with up to four profiles at $9.99 a month or $59.99 per year.

You can also take advantage of a free trial for 30 days. Sign up at
