U.S. Virgin Islands, June 9, 2020 — Thanks to the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands’ participation in The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, families in the Territory can download and enjoy the Nogginapp FREE for 180 days. A subscription normally costs $7.99 per month. Noggin, the learning app from the experts at Nick Jr., brings more than 30 years of preschool edutainment experience into a smart and fun tool for kids ages 2+. Noggin provides access to an ever-expanding library of educational games, eBooks, activities, and exclusive shorts developed by curriculum specialists. With 1,000+ ad-free full episodes of preschool favorites like PAW Patrol, Peppa Pig and Bubble Guppies, children can go on learning adventures and explore math, science, literacy, music, manners, and more.
In light of the school closures and childcare issues disrupting the lives of families all across the country, Noggin is offering its service FREE for 180 days (for those who sign up by June 30, 2020) in partnership with the Campaign for Grade Level Reading. Families who sign up between July 1 and August 31, 2020 will receive 90 days free. The Campaign is a collaborative effort by foundations, nonprofit partners, business leaders, government agencies, states and communities across the nation to ensure that more children in low-income families succeed in school and graduate prepared for college, a career, and active citizenship. The Campaign focuses on an important predictor of school success and high school graduation—grade-level reading by the end of third grade.
