School Supplies for Early Learners
Early learning is a time of awe and wonder. Little ones are starting to explore the world around them and are using their senses and imaginations to soak up information like a sponge. To enhance learning experiences for preschool-age children, there are a few devices, apps and tools to implement just in time for back-to-school school season.
- Kids Headphones: Did you know that sound and music are an integral part of early childhood development? For instance, music is proven to improve a child’s cognitive functioning. Shop the JBL Kids Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones that come in cool colors, have ear cushions for comfort, include a fun sticker set, and are perfectly sized for kids.
- Bluetooth Speaker: There are so many ways to bring tunes to little ones’ ears for the ultimate learning experiences.
