A new campaign called #LearnThroughThis has been launched by VTech Australia, creator of Electronic Learning Products for children. The campaign is seeking to support both children and parents during this challenging time, using its two brands: VTech Toys and the well-known LeapFrog. Grounded in discovery and learning, the company knows that now, more than ever, ways to encourage creative play and learning is important along with supporting the families that are vulnerable.
Free online Resources for Parents and Children
By offering a variety of resources, including free content, they hope to keep children entertained and educated while many cannot attend school or preschool as usual. You can now access an extended free trial of the interactive learning program called LeapFrog Academy, and expert-recommended products that are key to supporting children with reading, writing and other developmental activities.
To find the program and products you can join the LeapFrog Learning Path, an online portal, which will also have all of the advice from learning experts. Advice covers a range of topics, from learning to read, to preparing children with important skills for the 21st Century. In addition, you can also find a suggested daily schedule, a list of educational websites and free printable activity books. These resources are designed to help you maximise your child’s extra time during COVID-19, all for free.
Save the Children Australia
Perhaps the most important part of the campaign is the partnership with Save the Children Australia. LeapFrog and VTech Australia are encouraging both children and parents on social media to draw a picture that will inspire hope and positivity for other families. Every drawing shared will mean one toy is donated to Save the Children Australia, which will be distributed to vulnerable families within care packages. These care packages are created by the organisation to ensure that children are kept safe, educated and happy while we navigate the challenges of isolation.
Together, we can support vulnerable families and spread the love through the #LearnThroughThis campaign. To help get toys donated, get involved and share your drawing in the comments of VTech Toys ANZ’s comments or tag them in your post. You can find out more on their Facebook Page. All you need is a pencil and paper!
