(STUART, FL) – Martin County Library System announces the acquisition of six Early Literacy Stations™ (ELS), a comprehensive, turnkey educational solution loaded with over 60 educational software titles for kids ages 2–8. One ELS will be available at each library location. The Early Literacy Station™ offers children a safe, standalone computer not connected to the Internet that is age-appropriate, engaging, and academically relevant for children. It is designed to support school readiness and technology access while making learning exciting.

The Early Literacy Station’s educational software covers seven curricular areas: reading, math, science, social studies, writing, arts and music, and reference. The system is designed to attract and educate toddlers through early elementary school ages. Many of the software programs contain disguised learning activities that expand the child’s experience through games and extension activities.

AWE’s Early Literacy Station™ educational software titles on Version 10 include:

• La Casa de Dora
• SpongeBob SquarePants Typing
• Giggles Kids My Musical World/ABCs and 123s
• Kid Pix 3D
• Math Doodles

• Know Your USA
• Sesame Street
• Speakaboos interactive storybooks
• World of Goo

The Early Literacy Station has an imaginative interface that encourages exploration by readers and pre-readers alike. Since it is a self-contained computer, the need for adult intervention and technical support is greatly minimized.

“The Early Literacy Station is an invaluable resource for our toddlers to 5th grade students,” says Jennifer Salas, Library Operations and Services Administrator. “The kids are having fun, and many times they don’t know they are learning!”

AWE’s Early Literacy Station, the company’s flagship product, is found in over 35% of public libraries across the United States as well as in many communities in Canada and abroad. AWE is a provider of digital learning solutions for young children that inspire a lifetime of learning. For more information, visit www.awelearning.com.
