Savvy Source Releases 'Learning Guide' to Help Parents Identify Child's Developmental Strengths and Needs

- The Free Program Provides Parents With Recommendations for the Best Educational Toys to Help Create a Rich Learning Environmen

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Savvy Source for Parents (http://www.savvysource.com/), in partnership with Core Knowledge, a nationally renowned education non-profit, launched a free, online Learning Guide today to give parents a relatively simple process for identifying the best books, toys and activities to meet their child's developmental strengths and needs. All parents of toddlers and preschoolers have to do is answer a simple set of questions about their child's development and then Savvy Source provides parents with a customized set of recommendations of the very best educational books, toys and activities to engage a child's imagination and development at this particular moment of their growth. The free program was launched around the holidays so that parents can share the recommended gift list with family and friends.

"With the Holidays approaching, many parents of toddlers and preschoolers are interested in buying their children toys that inspire wonder and meet their child where they are developmentally." said Stacey Boyd, CEO and Founder of Savvy Source for Parents. "Our free tool gives parents a quick analysis of their child's developmental needs and offers a customized set of educational gift ideas drawn from award winning toy providers such as Oppenheim Toy Portfolio and Dr. Toy as well as recommendations from the nation's leading preschool directors. This holiday season, parents can create a rich learning environment at home and set the tone for the New Year ahead, while involving friends and family in the process."

The Savvy Source Learning Guide questionnaire asks parents to answer a simple set of questions concerning a two to six year old child's development, such as how their child makes friends, the level of their early literacy skills, and their movement and coordination abilities. Based on answers to these questions, the Savvy Source provides a customized set of recommendations of the very best educational books, toys and activities to engage a child's imagination and development at this particular moment of their growth.

Recommendations in The Savvy Source's Learning Guide, based on a child's unique developmental needs, are drawn from toys that have won awards from the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio; Dr. Toy and Parent's Choice; Books and toys recommended by Directors at some of the most highly regarded preschools in the country; Preschool Sequence-designed activities; the parent-generated Savvy Activities Encyclopedia; and Savvy Picks from the Savvy Source Book and Toy Editors.

In addition to having access to hundreds of free activities tailored to their child's developmental needs, parents can turn the book and toy recommendations into a Learning Registry to be shared with grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends as they are doing holiday shopping, so that gift giving is uniquely tailored to a child's age, interests and personality. The Savvy Source launched the tool to provide parents with a tool to help them create a rich learning environment at home for their child's future development as well as hours of inspiring play.
