Scientific studies have shown that 90% of a child's brain development happens before the age of five. From 1 to 2 years old, babies begin to explore and discover things. At 2.5 to 3 years old, they start to interact with other kids and adults.
Little Explorers: Learning starts at home

Media guest and influencers were invited to step into the world of our kids, so they can explore and understand better what young learners need-and how Little Explorers can help address those essentials.
During the event, carnival booth games and other activities were put up to encourage attendees to tap into their inner child. Young children were also present and had a fun time during the activities. Giant book covers of Little Explorers titles were set up for guest to scan so they can enjoy augmented reality experience.
