Mowry 1

Tia Mowry-Hardrict is a mom who is determined to help kids learn. The actress recently partnered with Nickelodeon to bring a new program called ‘Beyond The Backpack’ that helps parents teach their kids essential English and Math skills that they need to thrive in school.


“Nick Jr. Beyond the Backpack provides parents, who may not know where to start, with a customized learning plan from experts in the field of early childhood education, that will provide a solid foundation for preschoolers preparing to attend kindergarten,” said Tia in a statement. “As a mom of a preschooler, I am thrilled to partner with Nickelodeon on such an important issue.”

‘Beyond the Backpack’ personalizes every child’s learning experience by first giving parents a quiz. After completing the exam, moms and dads will receive access to games and other activities that hone in on their little one’s interests. It is Nickelodeon’s belief that such tailor-made learning will help kids do well in school.

You can learn more about ‘Beyond the Backpack’ at the program’s website. Tia and husband Cory Hardrict are the proud parents of one son.
