After birth, the anterior fontanel on a human infant's skull stays soft for about 18 months, giving parents less than a two-year window of safety from baby head butts and potential horn development. Help your baby get ahead with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a seven-DVD box set with flashcards from the Preschool Prep Company (a $99.95 value).
With more than 25 national awards for its child-education tools, the Preschool Prep Company helps little ones master educational fundamentals at a very young age. This Groupon features a seven-DVD pack, which help kids ages 9 months to 6 years learn edification essentials including letters, numbers, shapes, and colors. Two of the DVDs, "Meet the Sight Words 1" and "Meet the Sight Words 2," help babies and toddlers produce more than saliva and incoherent babble by associating memorable characters with short words that don't follow basic reading decoding rules, such as of, here, and antidisestablishmentarianism. Children and parents can also use the sight words flashcards to engage in hands-on vocabulary review and late-night diction blackjack.
Preschool Prep Company
The Preschool Prep Company's award-winning line of DVD's and books are designed to teach children basic concepts such as letters, numbers, shapes, and colors. Founder Kathy Oxley has good reason to believe that toddlers’ can easily learn these concepts. After exposure to the alphabet, Oxley’s 14-month-old daughter began to recognize letters on signs and in books. Within a year, the two-year-old could read simple words on her own. Preschool Prep aims to provide children with a basic set of tools they'll be able to use when they're ready to learn how to read. In the end, it's a philosophy very similar to other educational approaches. "We teach toddlers to identify dogs, elephants, unicorns and dinosaurs," Oxley said in an interview with EW.com. "Letters are no different. They are just animals of a different kind."
