GRAND HAVEN, Mich., Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- School Zone Inc., a recognized market leader in creating innovative multimedia learning tools to prepare children for a lifelong love of education, announced today the launch of an all-new brand, Anywhere Teacher, which features an online destination, AnywhereTeacher.com, and proprietary supplemental learning products designed by educators to provide an innovative, curriculum-based supplemental learning experience tailored for children and parents.
Expanding on its nearly 40-year heritage of delivering award-winning early learning solutions, the launch of School Zone Inc.'s new brand coincides with the debut of the newly launched online destination, AnywhereTeacher.com, a "Digital Educational Playground" for children ages 2-8 that connects with kids, wherever they are, and makes learning fun. The content is created exclusively by School Zone Inc.'s dedicated team of educators, editors, designers and programmers, specifically created to give peace of mind to busy parents when children are accessing the easy-to-navigate site independently.
AnywhereTeacher.com provides a safe and trusted subscription-based "supplemental" learning environment, which combines the power of video with traditional learning tools such as digital flash cards, games, interactive worksheets and printable activities, providing learning at a child's fingertips—anywhere and at anytime. Having sold 350 million workbooks to date, School Zone Inc. products are a leading choice of teachers for their children and students and the largest supplier of workbooks and flash cards to home-school families. Over 70 products are available at major retail stores across the U.S., including Toys"R"Us, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Sam's Club, Costco, Jo-Ann's, Hobby Lobby, Barnes & Noble, Menards and more.
Commented School Zone Inc. CEO Jonathan Hoffman, "Throughout 2016, School Zone's ongoing focus has been on not only the digital conversion of our assets, but distribution as well. Our original and award-winning programming, workbooks, flash cards and other products have helped millions of parents give their children an early learning advantage. With the launch of Anywhere Teacher, we continue to expand easy access for families across a variety of digital platforms, providing parents with the utmost freedom to view our material on any platform anywhere, anytime, globally."
Adds Barbara Peacock, Managing Director, School Zone Inc., "A parent's role is increasingly important in our children's education today, especially because there are a lot of entertainment-only based alternatives. Anywhere Teacher is a fun and cost-effective supplemental learning 'solution' that captivates, motivates and energizes young minds and helps make parental participation in their child's education an effective partnership because they are utilizing tools that have been developed based on decades of research and broad-based experience working with educators. Everyone at School Zone Inc. has taken immense pride and dedication to create this powerful experience tailored for children and parents. Taking this digital world and making it tangible beyond the screen in a guaranteed, simple, safe way is the AnywhereTeacher.com goal."
