Can't Wait to Learn

The app Can't Wait to Learn allows Ukrainian children to continue learning wherever they are. The program is currently available for children in grades 1 through 4 and is now focusing on math lessons. They are also working on reading lessons that will be available this month. Through the app, children receive feedback after playing educational mini-games.

To download the app you need internet, but after that you can use the program offline. The app can be found in the App Store and Google Play. Teachers, parents and caregivers who use 'Can't Wait to Learn: Ukraine," anywhere, can find more information and guidance on this website.
