have these resources at hand for your child’s learning. In addition to curating
bilingual Youtube videos and Spotify playlists, BrookieKids incorporates up-to-date

that encourages the child to actively use both languages.

Is BrookieKids available only in English and Mandarin?
For a start, BrookieKids is available only in English and Mandarin. However, let us know your thoughts! We are always looking to expand our content for more parents and children.
How does the monthly subscription plan support my child’s learning?
The monthly subscription plan is designed to help children in their early years get
comfortable with English and Mandarin by providing content which is appropriate for
their stage of development. We focus on building your child’s interest in the
language and meeting their learning needs, through a blend of sensory-rich online
and offline activities, with included screen breaks, to prevent eye fatigue. Here at BrookieKids, we strive to instil confidence in your child in speaking two
languages through consistent exposure to both languages and by breaking content into
bite-sized pieces, to facilitate your child’s learning.
How can I track my child’s progress?
BrookieKids provides you with a customised dashboard which shows your child’s
progress and enables you to earn rewards for each milestone your child completes.
What age is BrookieKids suitable for?
BrookieKids is appropriate for children aged 2 to 6 years old.
What are voice-interactive stories?
These are child-led stories where children get to choose how a story unfolds through actively verbalising their choices (e.g., go to the park or go to the playground). Our voice-interactive feature allows your child to practise the languages on their own and tracks the words they have spoken over time.
What is inside the activity kit?
Inside each activity kit, there is a variety of play-based resources including hard copy books in two languages, materials for hands-on activities (e.g. crafting, games, cooking), all tied to a single theme for the month. Some examples of the themes include food and nature!
Are the items for hands-on-activities in the kit safe for my young child?
Yes! We ensure that the items are developmentally-appropriate for your child. However we do advise adult supervision for hands-on activities to ensure your child uses the materials correctly and safely.
I see that you have theme-based activities. Will I be able to select the theme for my child?
You will be able to select the theme (e.g food or nature) for the first 3 months
according to your child's interest as we scaffold and nurture their enjoyment of the
language when you subscribe for the plan. However, if you are not certain which
theme to choose, we can also recommend some themes based on your child’s interests. Thereafter, we will deliver our recommended themes on a monthly basis with no selection from you required.
What type of online activities are available for my child?
As part of the subscription plan, we have our voice-interactive choose-your-own-adventure stories, curated Youtube videos with supplementary voice-interactive questions as well as Spotify music and podcasts, in both languages. These online resources are carefully selected, with the voice-interactive questions designed by the BrookieKids team, to ensure quality screen time for your child.
What type of hands-on activities are available for my child?
Depending on the theme, there will be different activities. You can expect activities ranging from categorisation games, pretend play, and cooking to arts and craft.
Are the BrookieKids activities appropriate for my young child?
Yes! BrookieKids program is designed to meet the learning needs of young children such that they are able to stay engaged for the entirety of the activity plan.
Must I follow the recommended activity plan strictly?
The activity plan is only a guide, and you can modify it according to your convenience and preference. All activities will be made available to you from the start of each plan, which means that you can create your own activity plan too!
