It is a self-contained educational tool for children ages 2-10 and features 50 educational software programs with some 500 activities. The ELS covers seven curricular areas including reading, writing, phonics, math and problem solving, science, social studies, arts and music. You can sign-up for a 20 minute session for your child.
