TRIBE is a social online education experience for very young children. TRIBE’S unique program blends learning, play and peers to support pre-school aged children through the COVID-19 pandemic crisis and beyond.

We’re all feeling a little uncertain these days. COVID-19 has changed the world in a matter of weeks. But for our youngest communities, this disaster is even more disruptive. With the closure of many pre-schools, parents have been left trying to juggle working from home and their children’s education single handedly. Often at the same time. Many children are left feeling isolated, with routines and education being disrupted at a particularly vulnerable time.

TRIBE was created by parents and educators in collaboration with young children (aged 3-5) to reconnect them with their pre-school community through interactive online classes. But it’s more than a digital platform for pre-school education. It has been designed in consultation with online learning experts, early childhood educators and health professionals to address the unique needs of children who are ‘social distancing’ as a result of COVID-19.

“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.”

– Maria Montessori
