Sandbox Group, the London-based group operating a network of learning businesses, announced that it is partnering with DK12, a free online homeschool curriculum, to help children with their educational outcomes. The collaboration aims to provide a comprehensive and engaging educational solution that supports both academic and creative growth in children in the U.S. and worldwide.

As part of the partnership, all free subscribers to the DK12 homeschooling network will receive one-month free access to the app, PlayKids+ that will be redeemable throughout the summer. Advanced members will receive a full year of PlayKids+ as well as further benefits and offline learning supplements from PlayKids.

The partnership aims to offer DK12’s more than 800,000 homeschooling families a healthy entertainment option for the summer vacation and the opportunity to keep children busy in a guilt-free way. PlayKids’ online and offline learning materials create a seamless ecosystem where digital and physical experiences enrich each other, paving the way for innovation, growth and a deeper impact on young audience's lives. From tactile play to reading books, PlayKids can support children’s learning naturally, through fun activities.

With DK12’s extensive online curriculum and PlayKids’s dynamic learning platform, students will have access to a robust educational resource that combines rigorous academics with fun, interactive content. This partnership represents a significant step forward in delivering a holistic education that adapts to the needs of today's digital-native students.

We’re excited to partner with PlayKids+ to bring an innovative and engaging educational experience to our students,” says Gary Brooks, founder, DK12. “This collaboration allows us to enhance our curriculum with interactive content that will not only support academic achievement but also foster creativity and a love for learning. Together, we can provide a resource that is both comprehensive and fun, meeting the diverse needs of children in a way that is accessible to all.”

 “We see our latest partnership with one of the largest homeschooling networks in the U.S. as a great way to help families find entertainment for their children for the summer vacation without the need to compromise on learning,” Shan Eisenberg, chief commercial officer, Sandbox. “The U.S. market is one of the key areas for us, so we are glad to see a growing awareness of the importance of quality learning opportunities outside of a formal school setting. We offer the ideal products to supplement formal education in a fun and creative way and hope that working closely with DK12 we’ll be able to offer more curriculum-based home learning experiences for families in the region.”
