About Us

MarcoPolo is reinventing early learning children’s media for a new generation. The company is a top global publisher of award-winning educational games and videos for curious children age 3-7. We inspire children to become explorers and life-long learners. We make STEAM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) an adventure, filled with the thrills and joys of discovery, for early learners, parents and educators.

Apps include our flagship subscription app, Emmy-nominated MarcoPolo World School, and free-to-play apps Weather, Arctic, Recall and Ocean. MarcoPolo also produces award-winning content for broadcast. Our TV series, The Polos, is broadcast worldwide, including Discovery Family (USA), NatGeo (LatAm), YouKu (China) and Nickelodeon (India).

Our Mission

At MarcoPolo Learning, our mission is to create world-class, educator-created content for early learners that nurtures children’s curiosity. We believe that we can change the world by giving every child access to the highest-quality, inspiring early childhood educational content. Our products spark curiosity that lasts a lifetime, helping children to build the skills to unlock their full potential.

Our Team

We started out with the realization that there weren’t many interactive tools out there to help children explore the world. So, we brought a team of PhD early childhood education specialists and children’s media experts on board to help create interactive experiences to make quality STEAM learning accessible to every family, everywhere in the world.

The MarcoPolo headquarters are located in London with additional offices in New York and Shanghai. Our team is made up of exceptional people who share the passion and curiosity to make a change.
