Family Learning FAQs
What Do You Mean By “Affordable?”
We provide two affordable paths to ownership. A family can buy a product outright for a one-time payment of $59.95. They get thousands of effective learning activities, for children and adults, for as many as six family members. Compare a one-time cost of $59.95 to a subscription of $9.99 a month forever; that’s affordable. Or, a family can buy 5-hour learning blocks for $4.95; that’s affordable, too. After a family buys sixteen 5-hour learning blocks, they, too, own the product and never pay additional money.
Do Families Really Own Your Products?
Why Don’t You Sell Subscriptions?
We don’t sell subscriptions for a number of reasons. First, you have to pro-actively stop a subscription; if you forget to stop a subscription (as most people do), you end up paying for months before you discover the problem. Second, many subscriptions make it difficult for you to stop them. Third, subscriptions go on forever; they never lead to ownership. Finally, subscriptions end when you stop making payments; even if you want to “continue” at a later date, you start all over again, having lost all your record-keeping data.
What Are 10-hour Learning Blocks?
For those families that want to make small, affordable payments, we sell 10-hour learning blocks. Each 10-hour learning block enables family members to use a product for ten hours. When the ten hours have been used, the product is put on pause. Whenever another 10-hour learning block is purchased, you resume where you left off, with all your record-keeping data having been saved. After a family purchases six 10-hour learning blocks, you own the product and never make additional payments.
Who Owns a Product When an Organization Buys It?
The family always owns the product, whether the family itself buys it or an organization buys it and “gIves” it to the family.

What’s the Difference Between Family Engagement and Parent Engagement?
Family engagement is often confused with parental engagement in their children’s education programs. Parents are invited to back-to-school night to meet their children’s teachers, they may be given access to their children’s gradebook, they are encouraged to communicate with their children’s teachers, but, they are not given a clear role in their children’s learning.
