Discovery Goes Green

The preschool classroom environment is an excellent vehicle for introducing environmentally sound decision-making even to the youngest students. While in higher grades, this kind of education might take the form of special projects and perhaps also involve some student research and report writing, in the case of preschool children this training lends itself to modeling everyday life decisions.
In a few short years, the upcoming generation will decide the fate of this planet. And when it comes to how to teach children science, math, and geography, you're the best at it. The interdisciplinary skills they learn today will be the planet-saving skills they enlist tomorrow.
 As teachers we need to help children develop a connection to the environment, through both learning and experience.

Personalize Learning
Children log in to their own learning environment that captures progress and authentic work samples.

Encourage & Engage
Educational technology captivates children and instills a lifetime love of learning from an early age.

Build Essential Skills
Scaffolded lessons build upon foundational concepts in early math and literacy according to each child’s needs.

Preschool Technology
Combining child-directed discovery with teacher instruction to help scaffold and support children as they learn skills represents a highly effective educational environment for young children.

Studies show significant gains

Recent studies show children making significant gains in literacy and math scores after using Hatch Technology for only six months in their classrooms! Hatch products provide comprehensive cognitive and social-emotional skill development. Best of all, they seamlessly integrate into the classroom–Teaching is easier with Hatch!
