Hundreds of New Activities

Free for Cloud Users

Schools and districts that subscribe to Waterford Early Learning in the cloud or SmartStart can download the app for free in the iTunes app store.

Switch Seamlessly

Student progress data and placement in the sequence is synced between all devices instantly, allowing students to switch easily between iPads, desktop computers and laptop computers.

Research shows early math scores are a better indicator of future literacy scores than early literacy scores. Now, with Waterford Early Learning’s math and science curriculum on iPad, Waterford is more accessible to even more students. And teachers have one more tool to reach our shared goal: giving every child a great start!

One other great feature in this update: More than 300 SmartStart printable classroom materials—including resources like practice pages, PDFs, and audio clips—are now available directly in the Waterford Manager.
