The Learning Bean was founded by Ella Simmons to help educators and parents with education solutions that help children succeed. Whether you’re a parent, teacher, or school we offer strategic education training, resources, and tools that will increase learning outcomes. Our signature program THE KINDERGARTEN PREP PROGRAM helps to prepare children for Kindergarten readiness. We train parents and educators on our systematic explicit instruction program that teaches early literacy, and math skills. What is the kindergarten prep program? An early literacy and math program that uses a multi-sensory approach to learning letters, phonemic awareness, and early math concepts. This program provides parent training, guided lesson plans, student workbooks, and additional learning materials. This program empowers parents to provide one-on-one, direct instruction that targets skills in reading and in math. This program is designed to help children build the fundamental skills to be successful in school. Only approved educational items are reimbursable. Please visit this link for full details.

Homeschoolers may only purchase the following:

  • Learning curriculum (including books)
  • Learning materials: consumables i.e. supplies which are consumed, destroyed, or expended by the student in the process of use
  • Manipulatives: physical objects that are used as teaching tools to engage students in hands-on learning.

Please note that ACE account funds cannot be used for the purchase of electronic devices.
