About the Little Oxford App

What the app includes

The app offers a fun, playful and interactive set of seven learning pathways for your child to explore.

Each pathway in the app is linked to one of the seven areas of learning in the Early Years Curriculum. Little learners will uncover exciting new picture books, have fun with the characters they meet along the way, and complete lots of games and activities that make learning fun!

App Content


Each of the pathways in the app is listed below. Click on the pathways to find out more about what’s in them and what skills your little one will develop while using them, including lots of extra activities you can do offline together to help your little learner with the different curriculum areas:

There are opportunities throughout the pathways to see and hear letters and sounds, learn new words and use the app to play with concepts like rhyme, size, shape, colour and number.


How to Use the app

Check out our parent guide to using Little Oxford for advice and guidance on how to use the app and make the most out of it with your little one, including guidance on using digital products with little ones.
