Children’s educational products publisher and retailer Scholastic Inc. has launched the Parent Activity Center, a new play space at Scholastic.com where parents and their young children up to age 8 can play and learn together. Parents also can find information on their child’s learning and development patterns.
The new site within Scholastic.com offers parents safe, age-appropriate, and educational content about and for their young children. Parents can find tools and resources that support their child’s early education and development while kids play and learn with some familiar Scholastic characters and book series, including Clifford the Big Red Dog and Miss Spider.
“The new Parent Activity Center on Scholastic.com has something for the whole family -- fun games and activities that children will love and expert advice that parents need,” says Seth Radwell, president of eScholastic, a division of Scholastic. Scholastic is No. 44 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide.
Through the activity center, parents can access free expert information on the Scholastic Parent Channel about their child’s learning and development at every age and stage. In addition to expert articles, tips and informational videos, parents also can follow parenting blogs written by experts for every age, sign up for a newsletter geared to their child’s age group and share their own thoughts in the “mom online” community.
