At-Home Learning Kit Resources

At Atlas, we celebrate the wonder and magic of learning. As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our team has created and distributed over 800 at-home learning kits to families with children ages 3-6 living in the City of St. Louis. Our at-home learning kits are a great way for your family to engage with our team and see for yourself what makes Atlas so special. The theme of this season’s kit is Feathery Friends, and it includes books, resources, and activities that are designed to be fun and engaging. Our learning kits are geared towards 3-6 year old students and are completely free to families who live in the City of St. Louis. To register for a kit, please fill out a form today!
