Early learning lab use play to open up the world of early math, science, and language skills for young children. Hands-on, engaging explorations with colorful LEGO® DUPLO® bricks ignite natural curiosity and foster a love of discovery and investigation, while playful faces, storytelling activities, and collaboration-based lesson plans for teachers help the youngest students develop social and emotional skills that set them up for a lifetime of successful learning.
Early Learning Solutions are designed to ignite curiosity and integrate easily into your classroom. Early Learning offers solutions in these areas:
Early Math & Science
Children naturally sort, count, and classify, and LEGO DUPLO bricks provide a hands-on way to explore numbers, shapes, and colors as kids construct and deconstruct their creations. Colorful bricks and figures offer an engaging way to learn about cause and effect, motion, addition, and subtraction.
Early Language & Literacy
Nothing builds communication skills more than having the chance to express thoughts and ideas to others. Using LEGO DUPLO characters and backdrops to create stories introduces basic storytelling concepts to children and gives them an opportunity to share ideas — and the spotlight! — together.
Social & Emotional Development
Helping children develop social skills is a critical component of early learning education. LEGO Education Early Learnings’s “Emotions” bricks help teach kids to recognize feelings and understand similarities and differences, while developing collaboration and turn-taking skills.
In the hands of children, LEGO bricks are tangible, colorful tools that encourage creative play and foster collaboration. By constructing their own imaginative ideas with other students, kids build their communication, negotiation, and self-expression skills while practicing basic sorting and counting concepts.
