SplashLearn is free for schools and teachers, ensuring every child gets access to quality, fun education resources in their classroom. 

SpashLearn’s reading programme, which will feature the Oddbods books, has been designed to develop core reading skills through a sequential learning path that takes into consideration factors such as sentence predictability, word features, story structure, among several others. It’s a comprehensive and interactive programme that caters to children aged 3-11 years and features a rich library of titles. 

Sashim Parmanand, CEO at One Animation, said: “A key priority for our Oddbods’ brand strategy is collaborating with companies who share our ethos of bringing joy to children’s lives and offering them valuable tools to brighten and enrich their daily routines – we’ve found exactly that through this new partnership with SplashLearn. With their commitment to making learning fun with game-based pedagogy, paired with the creative and individual spirits of the Oddbods gang, we’re confident this partnership will deliver a hugely positive learning experience for SplashLearn’s extensive user base.”  

Arpit Jain, CEO, SplashLearn, said: “This is the start of an exciting partnership with One Animation's Oddbods. We have similar philosophies, and that is to provide children with a fun and holistic learning experience which goes beyond just academics. Along with core learning, it is also imperative that children develop social-emotional skills and celebrate differences. Having Oddbods books, with their characters and learnings integrated into the SplashLearn program takes us closer to our goal of cultivating a growth mindset and enabling every child to learn, fearlessly.”
