It is our mission to provide parents with tools to enrich their children

The idea for Cubby News came from the recognition and frustration at the amount of information our kids are constantly being exposed to. Specifically, that the information was frequently inadequate, mindless, too much, too little, and/or biased.
We wanted a tool that made our kids engaged and excited while also enhancing the quality time we spent with our children.

Read, Explore, Discuss

After recognizing the need to develop a tool for us parents to enhance the knowledge of our children, we set out to identify other areas in which we could help our children grow. We decided to focus on providing:

Educational reading material at an age-appropriate level

Allowing children to read the same news item as their parent but at an age appropriate level elevates their confidence.
At the same time, we further their reading comprehesion by including additional vocabulary words and their meaning.

Content relevant to the child's interests to broaden their horizon

We provide an awareness of current world events tailored to the interests shared between parents and children.
Our "Did you know" section at the end of each article, provides even greater exposure to relevant facts.

Conversation material to engage parents and children

The main purpose of Cubby News is to start conversations between parents and their children about the provided information.
Read, explore, and discuss together.
