Meaningful Family Engagement

“As parents and educators, we know that kids are more motivated and attentive at school when valuable learning experiences are integrated at home. As creators of the award-winning InvestiGator Club® curriculum, we are thrilled that parents will now have simple tools to help them read, talk, and play together while continuing their child’s adventures at home. Dilly’s Tree House is the ideal family engagement solution for any early childhood program.”

— CEO Judi Coffey and the Dilly’s Tree House Team

Benefits of Dilly’s Tree House School Edition

Your classroom is humming with developmentally appropriate activities that stimulate children’s natural curiosity, get kids up and moving, and engage them in inquiry-based learning experiences. But what happens to all that great learning when the kids go home?

Now you have a way to extend that learning and make it stick by offering to families research-based tools that model and apply effective practices to everyday life.

When you offer Dilly’s Tree House:

  • you will be doing something truly remarkable for families.
  • children’s readiness skills and confidence will soar.
  • your program will stand out from all the rest.
  • you will be growing superheroes.

What is in each Dilly’s Tree House School Edition Pack?

  • A postcard from one of the InvestiGator Club characters
  • A Ready Set Go! Card describing the components and activities
  • A book focusing on one of the characters and a social-emotional skill, such as taking turns, sharing, or paying attention
  • An Adventure Shapers Story Kit
  • A Play and Learn Guide with 12 activities, enough for three 10-15 minute activities for families to do together each week
  • Dilly’s Music and Movement CD in Pack 1

How does the Dilly’s Tree House School Edition work?

  2. The first set, Starring Dilly Gator, comes with its own Dilly’s Tree House purple drawstring backpack. Packs 2-7 are packaged in plastic bags rather than boxes.
