CatnClever's Commitment to Providing Accessible and High-Quality Education for Early Learners Is Recognized with the Dr. Jelle Zijlstra Award for Global Impact
ST. GALLEN, SWITZERLAND / ACCESSWIRE / April 12, 2023 / CatnClever is delighted to share that it has been awarded the esteemed Dr. Jelle Zijlstra Award 2023 for Global Impact by the Swiss Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands (SCCN). This recognition celebrates CatnClever's contribution to making quality preschool education accessible to children worldwide as part of the company's social justice and global education efforts.
The Dr. Jelle Zijlstra Award is an honor given to outstanding international leaders who have made significant contributions in various fields, such as economic growth, innovation, statesmanship, and philanthropy. The award is named after Dr. Jelle Zijlstra, a former Prime Minister of the Netherlands.
The SCCN award recognizes exceptional achievements by individuals and organizations that have made a meaningful impact in society, both global and local. By highlighting the importance of international cooperation and collaboration in promoting economic growth, innovation, and social welfare, the award aims to inspire others to make the world more equitable and inclusive.
With these goals in mind, one significant area is early childhood education (ECE), which plays a critical role in children's development as well as their educational and professional outcomes. The first five years of a child's life are crucial for brain development and the acquisition of critical skills and habits. Moreover, research has overwhelmingly shown that high-quality ECE programs improve school readiness, academic achievement, and social skills, and also help reduce behavior problems and increase the likelihood of high school graduation and post-secondary education.
CatnClever is a gamified learning app designed for children aged 3-7 that offers quality math and literacy content and playful learning activities to support early childhood development. Drawing on cutting-edge research in the learning sciences, CatnClever uses stories and interactive exercises to foster socio-emotional skills and cultural understanding while giving kids practice with linguistic and cognitive skills (spelling, counting, spatial awareness, etc.). In addition, the app provides a safe and gentle introduction to learning in the digital world. It is ad-free and can be downloaded on smartphones or tablets, making it accessible anytime and anywhere.
The app uses adaptive learning technology to create an individual course of study that grows with the child. Caretakers can easily track and follow their child's progress through the app's parent dashboard, which provides insight into the child's interests and strengths, and allows caretakers to customize lessons based on the child's level of development and abilities.
"We prioritize the reduction of inequality in education and society, recognizing that early childhood education is crucial for achieving academic and overall success," says CEO Dr. Olga Ruf-Fiedler. "The Dr. Jella Zijlestra Award honors our commitment to making concrete contributions to our local and global communities, especially children in need."
CatnClever is committed to contributing to children's well-being and welfare by making its app available, at no cost, to families affected by humanitarian crises. The company believes every child deserves access to quality education and opportunities to learn and develop regardless of their circumstances. Through partnerships with humanitarian organizations and nonprofits, CatnClever strives to ensure that the application reaches underprivileged children all around the globe.
