How we help your kids learn

At Hopster we put children’s learning at the heart of everything we do, believing that entertainment and education can go hand in hand.

With that in mind, we have created our very own curriculum alongside leading academics in childhood education and cognitive development. Our unique ‘Discovery Learning Map’ is closely aligned with the UK early years foundation stage framework and formal early childhood curricula from around the world.

The importance of individual learning

We know that no two children learn in the same way; they go through different stages of development and pick up different kinds of thinking skills at each stage. Kids’ learning can’t be put in neat little boxes, they tend to learn in a more organic way; hopping in and out of topics and themes that have piqued their interest. Our Discovery Learning Map supports the kids with these individual learning journeys as they discover for themselves things that inspire, excite and fascinate them along the way.

About our Discovery Learning Map

We aim to pick shows and develop games that cover all aspects of childhood development, but also most importantly, are fun! Our Discovery Learning Map underpins all our content to ensure quality learning opportunities, creativity and increased independence for your child. You can relax knowing that no matter where your little one journeys to on Hopster they will be learning every step of the way.

Discovery Learning Map

Our 6 key learning areas:

  • Finding out… All about me, my friends & family

Children are gaining a sense of who they are and what it means to be independent. They are growing in confidence and learning how to interact positively with others around them.

  • Exploring… The world around me

Children are exploring concepts in their own environment as well as the wider world around them using a range of scientific processes.

  • Expressing myself… Through the arts

Children are experimenting with many different skills and fine-motor techniques, which allow self-expression through art, drama, music and movement.

  • Communicating through… Language and literacy

Children are learning to communicate through listening, talking, reading and writing and discovering the joy of communicating with others.

  • Thinking about… Numbers and solving puzzles

Children are thinking about basic foundational mathematical concepts and beginning to apply problem solving skills.

  • Understanding… My healthy body and mind

Children are developing an understanding of their physical selves and how their choices can impact on the health of their body and mind.
