Helping kids explore their ever-evolving interests and creating opportunities for them to flex their creativity muscles can sometimes feel like a full-time job. It can feel especially challenging when you’re trying to balance all this uber-enriching parenting work with responding to emails, getting dinner on the table and making sure everyone has clean laundry for the morning.

Thanks to Bennett Live, inspired by the educational style of Bennett Day School, you can now give your kids access to a vast library of engaging media, programming, and educational resources that will help them explore, learn and create independently—all from their favorite device!

Bennett Live is now available from Google Play and the App Store. Red Tricycle readers can get a free 7-day trial here!

Bennett Live offers a unique way to help kids stay busy and keep on growing and thriving at home. Unlike other apps that rely on fully-screen-based games to teach new skills, Bennett Live invites kids, ages 3-18, to immerse themselves in engaging pre-recorded media content. Every episode includes a project or activity to create, a unique learning guide and all the extra resources your kiddo will need to dig deep (and stay busy.)

 

After months of a little (okay, a lot) more screen time than usual, we all know that not all screen time is created equally. Kids’ brains respond differently when they have access to apps they can use independently and that offer them real opportunities to develop their growth mindset, creativity, problem-solving and social-emotional skills, physical growth and literacy skills. 

 

 

 

With partners like the Adler Planetarium, the Lincoln Park Zoo, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and game companies like SpinMaster, USOPOLY, and Wonderful Idea Co., you won’t ever have to spend a frantic evening trying to schedule expensive one-off classes to fill tomorrow morning again. The experts are all on Bennett Live and, while we're pretty sure your kid won’t burn through the 110,000 hours of viewable content that’s already on the app, new content is being added consistently! 

All kids deserve access to high-quality, creative and hands-on learning experiences, and Bennett Live is already helping to make this sort of learning possible for so many families (ummm, over A MILLION people so far) who are working and learning remotely.  

If Bennett Live sounds like something you’ve been dreaming of (whenever you get to sleep these days anyway), you’re in luck because it’s easy to sign up for a free 7-day trial. Once you and your kiddo see all it has to offer, we know you’ll be ready for more!

Bennett Live is now available from Google Play (for Android) and the App Store (for iOS). After a 7-day free trial, families can subscribe for $9.99/month or $79.99 a year.
