WHERE WE ARE TODAY
Our personalized learning videos were developed and created to meet the needs of parents struggling with the constant demand of attention and engagement gifted infants require. They are unique as they incorporate the voices of parents along with personal family photos into the learning content, making our videos engaging and captivating- as if parents are there teaching their babies themselves.
Our videos also include personalized content such as child's name and birthday, in conjunction with captivating learning content that introduces them to the world around them. Every scene is filled with fun vibrant colors and animation. Also, because the experts say that infants are drawn to high contrast pictures and objects we have incorporated that too. Not only does our content include the basics (shapes, colors, alphabet, and numbers), but it also includes more extensive content such as; environment, quantities, letter sounds, skip counting, phonics, and much more. The Upperclassmen option even enables parents to custom select the content for their video. From beginning to end our videos were created with the needs of early learners in mind.
From "U" University is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization, that believes in the short and long term educational and socio-economic benefits of progressive early learning and gifted educational opportunities. We are rooted in the belief that learning starts at birth.
To date we have published our website, which provides access to free early learning and development resources, information, and learning tools. Also, after much debate we have launched our first personalized and customizable early learning tool, which features the curriculum of one of our local educational partners, Foundations 4 AdVANCEment. Currently,
From "U" University is focused on the continued development and implementation of our early education and gifted enrichment programs. Our programming and initiatives are especially developed for pre-primary age children (0-5 years) and and their families.
