Encouraging Learning Through Play

LEGO® Education Solutions for early learning use play to open up the world of early math, science, and language skills for young children. Hands-on, engaging explorations with colorful LEGO® DUPLO® bricks ignite natural curiosity and foster a love of discovery and investigation, while playful faces, storytelling activities, and collaboration-based lesson plans for teachers help the youngest students develop social and emotional skills that set them up for a lifetime of successful learning.

We see the world with our eyes; we change it with our hands.
Hands-on LEGO® Learning is for life.

A World to Explore

LEGO DUPLO sets help children investigate the world around them, developing critical social and computational skills as they sort, classify, build, examine, and share their creations:

  • Constructing and deconstructing provides a tactile way to learn early math and science concepts
  • Creating and sharing stories using DUPLO characters builds early language and literacy skills
  • Roleplaying with “Emotions” bricks fosters social and emotional development
  • Creative exploration with other students builds negotiation, self-expression, and turn-taking skills.

Early Learning Solutions

Developed in alignment with NAEYC and HeadStart guidelines to promote 21st Century skills
for young children, LEGO Education Early Learning offers solutions in these areas:

Early Math & Science

Children naturally sort, count, and classify, and LEGO DUPLO bricks provide a hands-on way to explore numbers, shapes, and colors as kids construct and deconstruct their creations. Colorful bricks and figures offer an engaging way to learn about cause and effect, motion, addition, and subtraction.

Early Language & Literacy

Nothing builds communication skills more than having the chance to express thoughts and ideas to others. Using LEGO DUPLO characters and backdrops to create stories introduces basic storytelling concepts to children and gives them an opportunity to share ideas — and the spotlight! — together.

Social & Emotional Development

Helping children develop social skills is a critical component of early learning education. LEGO Education Early Learnings’s “Emotions” bricks help teach kids to recognize feelings and understand similarities and differences, while developing collaboration and turn-taking skills.                                       

Creative Exploration

In the hands of children, LEGO bricks are tangible, colorful tools that encourage creative play and foster collaboration. By constructing their own imaginative ideas with other students, kids build their communication, negotiation, and self-expression skills while practicing basic sorting and counting concepts.
