SmarterKids.com, is the number one educational store on the Internet that is dedicated to providing quality services and products to help parents instill a love of learning in their children. Smarterkids.com is unique for several reasons including the site's assessment and personalization options. Our Learning Style Survey allows parents and teachers to quickly and easily assess how a child learns best and find appropriate educational tools best suited to that child's individual style. Our MySmarterKids feature enables parents to develop distinct learning profiles for a child to ensure personalized product recommendations based on the child's individual learning needs, goals, and styles. Additionally, partnerships with Lightspan.com and National Computer Systems Inc. allow us to better bridge the gap between home and school. Together, we combine award-winning content and up to date statewide standards and assessment information with a unique educational shopping experience.
