A Great Education is Built Not Grown

EarlyMinds was created to bring beautifully designed and easy to use materials into the lives of young children to improve their education experience.



We believe that a good education becomes great, when parents, teachers, and schools all work together.

At Earlyminds our goal is to support Parents, Teachers and Schools by creating products that focus on the foundation skills, and make them easy to use.

For Parents

We have created the School Readiness Packs for Pre-School, Kindergarten and Grade One, covering all the skills each child will need before they start school.

For Teachers

We have created Lessons on the foundation skills to reduce their preparation times while giving everything they need to teach.

For Schools

We have created Programs that are designed to be implemented school-wide. This gives the school the ability to maintain consistency and continuity across all grades while the built-in tracking allows them to focus resources where they are needed.

Why Start So Early?

The early years are when the pathways in your child's brain are formed, when their capacity to learn is beginning, when their curiosity to discover new things is being developed, and when the building blocks of all learning are built.

We Support the Whole Child

We create materials to appeal to the senses, promote connection between adult and child, build foundational skills, imagination, independence, and develop an understanding of literacy, numeracy and STEAM.
