EduGuru Apps are designed and built to help children learn outside of the classroom, stimulate their imagination and make learning an open-ended fun activity. Cute and basic animations guide toddlers through the key UK national curriculum subjects of Maths, English, Science & Technology and Art & Music.
EduGuru Maths is the first in the series and has been designed for 3-5-year-olds in close collaboration with UK teachers, nursery schools, and parents. The app is packed with 128 fun to play games (wrapped in 8 core games) and priced at £1.99, with no subscription fee and all updates are provided free of charge.
EduGuru Maths covers key curriculum-based mathematical concepts and skills including:
Number recognition and ordering
Addition and subtraction
Matching, doubling, halving and sharing
UK/English coins, money and values
Telling the time
Patterns, shapes, and sequences
Size, weight, distance, and position
EduGuru Maths also features new and fun renditions of the classic nursery rhymes, Ba Ba Black Sheep and Hickory Dickory Dock, for toddlers to explore and sing along to.
EduGuru’s Apps contain no third party links or advertising, so allow children to learn and explore in a safe and secure environment, and importantly, as children progress through the games, they are rewarded, and motivated to continue learning, with trophies and medals. This means that parents can be sure that children playing EduGuru Apps are experiencing, and practicing, learning skills in accordance with the recommendations of early childhood experts.
The Game Creators, the UK-based development company that has designed and developed the EduGuru apps, were instrumental in producing the highly successful Fun School, Art Attack and Klik n Play in the 90’s. Building on the legacy of these popular games, and whilst the technology now makes games much more readily accessible, they believe the fundamentals of learning while you play remain and are an important part of the mix in a child’s education.
