K5 Learning: online reading and math afterschool program

K5 Learning was founded by parents who wanted better learning tools available to their kids for home use. The best software was marketed to schools, not parents. In 2010 we licensed the very best reading and math software, used in hundreds of schools, from leading U.S. education companies.

K5 Learning is formed from the combination of this award winning software. We believe K5 provides the best home use learning platform in North America for kindergarten through grade 5.

We believe:

  • Children's brains are like sponges. They can learn a lot given the opportunity.
  • Kids can only reach their potential by learning at their own pace.
  • Independent learning builds confidence and good study habits.
  • One of the greatest gifts you can give your children is strong reading and math skills. They are the basis of all future learning.

Where K5 fits in

There are many game based websites which entertain but have limited educational value and do little to develop study skills.  Many educational websites have quality activities, but lack the breadth and depth of content and structure (especially assessment, automatic lesson selection and student tracking) necessary for a sustained program.  Workbooks and traditional study materials require far more parental time (finding materials, choosing lessons, reviewing work) and can be dry and tedious for young children. One-on-one tutoring can be expensive, inconvenient and dependent on the quality of the individual tutor.

We designed K5 to be a practical solution for busy families who take education seriously.
