What is Early is Best?

Early is Best is a ‘for purpose, for profit’ educational technology (EduTech) business. The aim of Early is Best is to democratize access to early childhood development education and bridge the gap into basic education.

Early is best comprises a series of educational programs designed by expert junior primary school teacher, Beverley Berger, who’s philosophy is that when it comes to education, ‘early is best’.

It is important that parents, teachers and caregivers begin to instill engaging learning habits during the most formative years of a child’s life. This learning exposure enhances cognitive development and ultimately equips children with the intellectual tools to better equip them for success in life. It is a well-known fact that lower LSM, or rural region children are most adversely affected by under-exposure, and within the digital age, the gaps between children from lower LSM and higher LSM backgrounds will amount to an exponential difference in development, exposure and opportunity.

Early is Best has been developed for children between the ages of 3 -7 (depending on child readiness) and aims to acquaint children with modules that includes colours, numbers, animals, body parts, feelings, shapes as well as scaling into reading, writing and mathematics. All modules are structured as mobile games that serve to enhance interest, engagement and learning in children.

A Freemium version of Early is best if available for download on Android and iOS, on any smart device.

Early is Best has been developed to allow all games to be played off-line, and is therefore not costly on data charges.

   

Our charity Work

In order to provide ECD education access to as many children as possible, Early is Best has created a registered Non-Profit Company (NPC) through which we drive access to tablets and our educational content.

To-date, the team has completed a project with Afrika Tikkun, who supports some 1250 learners. Within this project, the Early is Best team conducted an immersive teacher-training workshop and equipped classrooms with our educational content.

The team has conducted a pilot project with The ECD Movement (within the Eastern Cape). The team plans to extend this project with the overall goal of providing tablets and educational content to 5 000 ECD centres (with a reach of approx. 150 000 children).

In 2020 our pursuits remain ambitious alongside a project with a leading South African bank.

If you would like to be part of our impact imperative, within a corporate of private capacity (through Corporate Social Investment (CSI) or philanthropic funding, a supply of tablets or other), please contact us on stacey@earlyisbest.com.
