[prMac.com] Palo Alto, California - Independent children's app developer BrightStart today is pleased to announce the launch of Pre-K Letters and Numbers With Real Time Reporting for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. BrightStart is an interactive learning system that teaches children Letters, Words, Numbers and Phonics in a fun and engaging way following government curriculum's adopted in UK, US and Canada from pre-K to grade 5. The applications bring together experiences in the classroom to your children's hands.
Pre-K Letters and Numbers is the first of a series of applications aimed at young children who are just setting out to build a foundation of language and numeracy, develop fine motor skills, understand phonics and build their vocabulary with the bonus of blending common letters and counting.
BrightStart's unique characters, music, sounds and over 75 fruit, vegetable, animal and items around the house illustrations help with the learning experience. Elel, Momo, Lili and friends guide the child through the letters, numbers and phonics experience with clear instructions, applause for success and 'Uh-oh' for mistakes.
Parents and teachers can review performance through their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or via BrightStartApps.com website which shows a Report Card highlighting success rates, bell curve ranking amongst peers and recommended development areas for each registered user.
"We spent considerable time with children and parents to help with the selection of illustrations and playability, and with both educators and parents for report design. The final product was demonstrated in a show and tell session at a local school in Palo Alto and was met with significant praise," adds Vandana Leung, BrightStart's Marketing Director.
