Rated A+ for educational value by Common Sense Media.

The Curriculum:

The MarcoPolo literacy curriculum immerses the learner in a text-rich digital environment. The curriculum targets a wide range of skill levels, from emergent readers to advanced learners. Learners are propelled by their curiosity to learn more about the content of the text as they gain skills in the following areas:
-Letter Sounds
-Digraphs and Blends
-Handwriting/ Letter Formation
-High Frequency/ Sight Words

Our math curriculum exposes the learner to mathematical activities that develop number sense so that your child will not only recognize numbers, but also be able to use them with ease and apply them in a real-world context. The math curriculum includes:
-Number Recognition
-Number Sequencing
-Addition and Subtraction Facts
-Counting in Ones and Groups (5s and 10s)*

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics):
Exploration is at the core of the science experience in the MarcoPolo World School. The main objective is to promote the notion that knowledge can be gained through exploration of the world around us. The characters model curiosity consistent with the development of scientific literacy and practices of science (i.e. experimenting, making models, supporting claims with evidence). Our rich curriculum includes exploration of:
-Habitats and Biomes
-Climate and Weather
-Behavior and Physical Adaptations
-The Human Body
-Life Cycles
-Living vs. Nonliving*
-Inventions and Innovations*
-Forces and Motion*

Social Studies*:
MarcoPolo offers a rich social studies curriculum to allow children to see how familiar concepts from their everyday lives manifest themselves around the world. They will learn about themselves, as well as gain knowledge of others. Topics include:
-Holidays and Traditions
-Music and Arts
-Major Historical Events
-Ancient Civilizations
-Famous Historical Figures
-Resources around the World

Social-Emotional Learning:
The MarcoPolo curriculum is designed to facilitate your child’s social-emotional development and create the framework and mental process that will later allow them to plan, make positive decisions, focus, multi-task, have self-control and establish healthy social connections. To do this, the learner:
-Interacts with diverse characters that model positive social behaviours
-Is encouraged by narrators using process-oriented speech
-Develops skills in short-term memory through various games
-Is exposed to transferable language that can be applied to everyday life experiences to help with conflict resolution, perseverance and acceptance of differences

Great support!


My grandsons loved this app until a forced update caused it to stop working entirely, both on the iPad and my iPhone. I unsubscribed initially but was contacted by the developers with the suggestion to try an uninstall and a reinstall. I did that with the result that it was again working fine to the delight of my grandsons and was better than ever with the human body section now added. I changed my subscription status back to subscribed because this is absolutely the favorite educational app here. Thanks not just for the app but for great support!

Developer Response

I'm sorry about this issue. For some users, the update didn't allow access to the app until the app was fully closed and reopened or reinstalled. So double click your home button, swipe up and close the app and it's reset. We sent instructions to all users by email just to make sure everyone knows what to do. Again, sorry about the inconvenience. Thank you for changing your rating to 5 stars!

Best learning app for my 3 year old!


I am a full time working mother and I make sure to sit down every night with my 3 year old son to play this game together!!! We both learn and I can see his skills in reading and math start to develop! I also get to learn more about him as I see him choosing his favorite topics and discovering new ones. I can’t wait to see what other learning topics they add to this app! I absolutely love it and it’s worth every penny!!

Great preschool and school age app


I have both a 4 and 6 year old and this app checks off lots of boxes for both! I love the sight word practice for my 6 year old and the letter/word practice tailored for my 4 year old (app asks for the ages of the kids and so both get tailored content to their age). The video content is unique, professionally done, and keeps them hooked. Great learning tool that we will be using often!
