Launchpad Tablets for Early Learning

Looking for a fun new way to teach your child important early learning skills? Try a Playaway Launchpad tablet at your local KCLS library! 

The tablets are best for ages 3 - 5 (Preschool - Kindergarten). Each one has a different theme and apps designed to teach skills in that subject. Here are three examples:

  • Number Magic               
    • Teaches math with apps like Mouse Math: Mice on Ice.
  • I Can Build That               
    • Teaches STEAM-focused thinking with apps like BioMio: My First Biology App.
  • Storytime Adventures               
    • Teaches English language skills with apps like Alphabet Coloring.

You can check out the Launchpads with a pair of headphones and use them while in the library. Snuggle up in the children's area and talk to your child about what they are playing. Or use technology together while you're using one of our public computers.

Ask at your library's information desk!
