Learning Mole is a fun and engaging platform that provides educational content for children to enjoy their learning. What once started off as a small project in 2017 has since blossomed into a popular channel that gains millions of views on YouTube and a website that attracts thousands of visitors per month.

Learning Mole is all about promoting interactive and engaging content that enhances the learning experience of children. Its founder, Michelle Connolly, is a previous primary school teacher, so who is better fitted than her to engage with young children and create content that stimulates their minds?

Supporting learning at home and in the classroom

The main goal of Learning Mole is to support learning both at home and in the classroom. Many of the Learning Mole videos are now free to view on Youtube but there are thousands more contained within the vaults of the Learning Mole website. 

You can access the premium subscription on Learning Mole for just £1.99 for the first 6 months.

The topics covered by Learning Mole include English, Math, History, Geography and STEM, and they are tailored to meet the needs of both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 learning. This type of visual learning uses a variety of characters in different animation styles, helping children stay engaged with the learning material.

It’s not just curriculum-based learning 

Another major goal of Learning Mole was to provide resources for children in learning life skills, something that is often overlooked within the traditional curriculum. This content includes topics such as financial literacy for kids and coding for kids. 

These life skills are best learnt at an early age, it will help teach them the importance of managing personal finances and introduce them to subjects that are not yet included in the national curriculum but ought to be.

And for parents

The content isn’t just for children to learn from, but also for parents to learn helpful tips that will support their children’s learning. It can be quite challenging to get the right techniques for teaching reading or writing, but with Learning Mole’s helpful videos, you can ensure that you are giving your child the best support at home.
