Literacy Lab

Organizational Overview

Literacy Lab is a dynamic ed-tech startup that provides direct service programs to young children and their families by leveraging three critical components early learners need when building a strong learning foundation–access to high quality interactive literacy resources, empowering relationships between children, family and educators, and use of technologies that will personalize learning and propel a child into reading success and a lifelong love of learning.
