Celebrating 10 years of curiosity

Celebrating 10 Years of Curiosity!

Curiosity IS learning. We set out to rethink educational content and technology for the 21st century child. Today, MarcoPolo Learning's products have been used in millions of homes and thousands of classrooms. And we're just getting started.

Designed by Educators. Built to Inspire.

MarcoPolo Learning was founded in 2013, with a mission to bring innovation to early childhood education by leveraging the power of media and technology. It launched its first early learning app, MarcoPolo Ocean, in 2013 and subsequently launched four other apps from 2013 to 2016. Its flagship learning app, MarcoPolo World School, has won numerous prestigious rewards for its educational and media value, including an Emmy award nomination. During the pandemic, MarcoPolo Learning created its first school solution, MarcoPolo For Educators, paired with MarcoPolo For Families to support bringing best instructional practices into the classroom and strengthening school-to-home connection.

Our program design, digital learning experiences, family engagement activities, and embedded professional development opportunities are grounded in research-based theories and principles of child development and foundational skill growth, led by Dr. Nermeen Dashoush, our Chief Learning Officer. Painstakingly detailed, Dr. Dashoush and her team oversee every word and image of our video content and lead the philosophy of our educational approach.
