NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/23/13 -- Playful Learning, the Parents' Choice Gold Medal award-winning online learning website for kids, today announced the re-launch of its Ecademy, which offers rich and dynamic online lessons that meet the academic, social and emotional needs and interests of children in grades K-5.
The revamped Ecademy features new and improved e-courses, all thoughtfully planned and taught by the website's founder, Mariah Bruehl. Bruehl has over 20 years of experience in the field of education, working as both a teacher and a director at highly respected schools including The Dalton School in Manhattan and Ross School in East Hampton New York. New lessons will be released on a monthly basis, covering topics such as social and emotional learning, reading, writing, math, science, nutrition, art, and technology.

The Playful Learning Ecademy offers bite-size eCourses for the whole family. With the upgraded Ecademy, Bruehl aims to bring high-quality education, typically only available in select schools, to parents and children regardless of their location and at an affordable price. Lessons are available for individual purchase at the low cost of $17. For the price of taking the family to a movie, parents can enjoy quality time engaged in meaningful learning experiences and hands-on projects with their children. The goal is to nurture habits of heart and mind to ensure that children are being provided with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the 21st century.
In the first new eCourse, Put-Ups and Put-Downs, children are taught about the power of their words and the affects they can have on how people feel. Skills are introduced on how to navigate complex social situations, with an emphasis on building strong communication skills and respectful behavior towards others.
"I couldn't be more excited to announce the re-launch of the Playful Learning Ecademy with our newly packaged eCourses," said Mariah Bruehl, Founder of Playful Learning. "We hope the engaging videos for children, helpful tips for parents, convenient printables and projects combined with the added ease of purchasing lessons individually and the reduced price point will allow more children and parents to enjoy and share our meaningful learning experiences."
Playful Learning Ecademy's cutting-edge lessons feature interactive and captivating videos for children introducing them to new concepts, skills, and hands-on projects. Parents receive separate instruction on how to most effectively work with their children on each particular topic, thus providing an education for the whole family within every course.
