With schools closed and kids home, we are all trying to adjust to this new normal: parents working from home without childcare while kids go stir-crazy indoors.
Of course, reading and learning during this time are important, but to get your kid to sit down and focus can be challenging, to say the least. We get it! We’re here to help.
We want to do more to engage your kids and give you some relief during this chaotic time. So we are bringing the unlimited discovery of Epic digital learning to life.
Starting Friday, March 27th, you can tune in to Epic Live!, a new Facebook Live video series featuring top-notch experts in their fields, leading a collaborative, educational, and fun class for your child. Each 20-minute episode will meet children at their level and provide them with an opportunity to explore at home, without begging you for attention and materials. They get a lesson they love, you get a break you need.
Among our guest teachers are best-selling authors, Tony award winners, chefs, scientists, Epic master teachers, and more!
Covering topics from graphic novels, to art, science, and more, there will be something every child will love watching while you enjoy 20-minutes of peace.
You can both enjoy some guilt-free screen time knowing they will be taught by the best in a completely safe, ad-free, and age-appropriate digital environment. Your at-home learning program just got easier.
