The Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library announces the acquisition of the Early Literacy Station™ (ELS), a complete, turnkey educational solution loaded with over 55 educational software titles for kids ages 2–8. The Early Literacy Station™ offers children a safe, standalone computer not connected to the Internet that is age-appropriate, engaging, and academically relevant for children. The ELS has a colorful keyboard and tiny mouse to promote easy learning and self discovery.
The Early Literacy Station's educational software covers seven curricular areas: reading, math, science, social studies, writing, arts and music, and reference. The system is designed to attract and educate toddlers through early elementary school ages.
The Early Literacy Station™ has an imaginative interface that encourages exploration. Many of the software programs contain disguised learning activities that expand the child’s experience through games and extension activities.
The Early Literacy Station was donated by The Riley Family Foundation.
