At Little Explorers Big World we are passionate about teaching world cultures and kindergarten-readiness skills through play!
The entire premise of Little Explorers Big World was born when we started having global family dinners at home. One night we made Greek food and listened to "Zorba the Greek" as we ate ... and somehow we ended up dancing around the kitchen and yelling "Opa!"
We saw how just having a Greek dinner together sparked our 3-year-old son's interest in world cultures, and that got us thinking about how we could help other families explore world cultures with their children.
Our website, Little Explorers Big World, will provide materials for parents and educators to teach kindergarten-readiness skills (including STEM skills, sensory activities, literacy, art, music appreciation, and more) though country-themed units. For each country's unit, we will include printables, activities, and links to other online resources to make each child's cultural experience as robust as possible. Our goal is to empower parents to introduce children to the beauty of cultural diversity while teaching essential kindergarten skills - and all through play!
Once the site is up and running we will launch our companion YouTube channel, which will feature educational videos for kids as well as parent resource videos.
The funds raised will be used for administrative business expenses, equipment, and editing software.
Thank you so much for allowing us to share our vision with you! We are truly passionate about cultivating cultural curiosity in children that will last a lifetime.
