Company

Business description: Education.com is an easy-to-use, one-stop destination for parents of preschool- grade 12 aged children, that blends cutting-edge editorial, useful tools, reference, and community. We rely on the experts who know the education space best -- parents and educators. Our members actively develop communities where they can interact with other people that share their passions-- trading tips, advice, and information. Education.com also features fresh, relative, and informative articles each and every day. Users depend on our site for answers to their most pressing parental issues, but also for ideas that make family life more fun. We cover topics across the parental spectrum -- from how to make homemade finger-paint, to why autism is on the rise, guilt-free after school snacks, to navigating the parent-teacher conference. It’s our goal to empower parents and to offer them the best educational resources and lifestyle content available. The site is currently in prototype and will launch officially in Spring, 2007.
