About Us

We work with education ministries and other partners to help children master the skills they need, in their own way and at their own pace.

Helping children around the world master what they learn

What We Do

Our Mission

The Age of Learning Foundation is a U.S. 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to fundamentally improve learning for children in low- and lower-middle-income countries. 

We partner with ministries of education, implementers, and funding partners to help (i) children discover their mastery learner identity, (ii) teachers become mastery learning tutors, and (iii) schools and education systems transform into mastery learning centers of excellence.  

We envision a world where every child in a conventional classroom can stay in their Zone of Proximal Development, supported by one-to-one tutoring approaches that blend the best of teacher, technology, and family learning.  

Breaking down the barriers

Our work is made possible by the innovation and generosity of Age of Learning, Inc.

From the creators of ABCmouse®, My Math Academy® and My Reading Academy™…

The company’s sense of mission and generosity enables the Foundation to reach children and schools with solutions and support at no cost.  

Let's reimagine learning
60 minutes at a time

The research shows that just 60 minutes of usage per week on mastery learning solutions can significantly increase learning gains in early math and literacy skills. We can get there, with your help.

70 percent of children worldwide are facing learning poverty. They are reaching the age of 10 without being able to read simple sentences, complete basic math, establish strong learner identities, or build social relationships. 

We can help improve learning for children across the world.

The Zone of Proximal Development

You have heard of athletes getting into the “zone.” Learning is just like that. There is a zone where children can experience “learning flow.” Lev Vygotsky, the Russian child psychologist, called it the Zone of Proximal Development. It is that remarkable space where learning is neither too difficult nor too easy. It is just right to help children build a true love of learning and acquire the tools and skills they need for mastery.

One-to-one mastery learning for all

Benjamin Bloom, the American education psychologist, discovered that children who receive one-to-one mastery learning perform much better than peers in conventional classrooms. Bloom therefore challenged the world to identify methods of group instruction that could be as effective as one-to-one tutoring. The Age of Learning Foundation is answering Bloom’s call in our partner countries.
