What reviewers say:

“As someone with a degree in Child Development, I really appreciated this app and what it was designed to do. This app has also made me look at my son’s behaviors and communication with a new perspective. If you are a busy parent, and aren’t we all, pick up Learner Mosaic to help you discover fresh new ways to nurture your child into a capable and intelligent adult.”—The iPhone Mom

“The more time I spend with this app, the more amazed I am at the thoughtful development…Overall, this is now a must-have app for parents of young children, and even better, it's completely free! Those who have kids using Leo's Pad will love how it pulls information from the child's game play. But even used on its own, it's a great resource.”—Smart Apps for Kids

App Features:

- The app will provide personalized insights into your child’s learning across more than 75 early-learning skills, which extend beyond the basic 123s and ABCs to cover other crucial areas, including social-emotional development, executive functions, critical thinking, and character skills, among others.
- Our exclusive content is crafted by a world-class team of learning scientists and early-childhood educators. Every article and recommendation is based on proven research and approved by preschool educators, so you can feel confident in the quality of the information.
- Parent observations submitted through Learner Mosaic and data from the companion app, the Leo’s Pad Enrichment Program for Preschoolers, create a unique, holistic portrait of each child as a learner.
- Learner Mosaic was designed for—and in large part by—busy parents. Every insight is easy to understand and is linked to a customized activity, learning resource, or conversation starter, so you can incorporate learning moments into everyday interactions with your child at your own pace.

Ratings and Reviews

Great for 3+ years

I'm using this app apart from Leo's Pad, so I'm not sure how that connection works. But as an app on its own, I'm pretty impressed so far! After answering a few questions about my nearly 4 year old, I've been given a handful of activities to help him improve in multiple categories. The activities are broken down very clearly so that I can easily replicate them with my child. It's like customized pinterest for homeschoolers, without being overwhelming.

My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to be entirely age appropriate. I added my 15 month old son, with his birth year in the settings, hoping they might have good insight for how to introduce him into this learning environment as well. But even though his initial screener questions were quite different from his brother's, they were both given the same activities to do. For example, the first activity is to help your child research something on the internet, even if it's just google images. While I can find a way to possibly make this somewhat work for my busy, non-patient toddler, I know the activity as it's suggested will NOT work for most barely 1 year olds. It also took away from that magical personalized feel, when I saw both boys of two vastly different personalities and differing ages were given the same exact activities.

Overall, though, I am impressed with the activities themselves and the many resources within. I will keep using it for my preschooler at least, and hope they continue to update it. What a great app!

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback, Icecreamandcake! As you've noted, Learner Mosaic only provides personalized insights about preschoolers (children between the ages of three and five years). Our system doesn't have any insights that are appropriate for infants or toddlers, so when you entered info for your 15-month old son, it simply provided the most basic insights available—which clearly wouldn't be age-appropriate for a child so young.
I encourage you to try Leo's Pad with your older son. I'm optimistic that he'll love it, and it will definitely enrich the recommendations that Learner Mosaic will be able to make for him!

Best of luck,
Dylan

Excellent and educational

I received this app free as part of BzzAgent. This is a companion app for Leos pad, an iPad app which my kids love. This app gives parents ideas of activities to do with their kids that are age-appropriate and suit their personality. I'm not the most creative in coming up with learning opportunities and I love that this guided me based on their individual personalities. Both my kids like this app and I highly recommend it. My only complaint with Leo's pad for the iPad, is that I wish it had more chapters. I'm hoping they're going to keep adding on to it. The price is a bit expensive, however a lot of the educational websites you have to subscribe and pay yearly and this one is a one time fee.

This app is a lifesaver. Not only does it give me helpful hints on what my children would enjoy and what will enrich their learning experience, but it does the one thing I personally need: it teaches me how to teach.

I don't know why, but I find it difficult to explain a process that I've mastered, like tying shoes or how to properly hold a pencil. This app gave me both insight on how to work around that, and the methodology to make it successful. Homework is a lot easier now, and a happier time. This will be a very well-used app.

I received a free app from BzzAgent for testing and review purposes. My opinions are completely my own.
