With Ignite by Hatch™, we’ve seen children experience two levels of growth in just six months. And much of that progress is owed to those behind the scenes, like Kylie Rymanowicz, a content developer at Hatch, who works on Ignite.
Recently, Kylie shared a case study from the 2020-21 school year that highlights the growth that can be seen when a pre-kindergarten program implements Ignite as their early learning platform. Read some highlights from the case study below, and watch the full video to see more information about how Ignite can move the needle for early learners.
For our case study, we chose a large district to get as much data as possible. Here's some more information about the school district observed for this case study:
• It serves more than 100,000 students.
• The district consists of both suburban and urban fringe districts.
• It includes more than 100 elementary schools, magnet schools, and pre-kindergarten centers, with more than 5,000 children in pre-kindergarten classrooms.
• Additionally, most schools in the district are Title I schools serving a predominately Black and Hispanic population, and the majority of students are of children of color.
According to Kylie, the study investigated pre-k children’s growth within the domains of social studies, science and technology, social-emotional development, physical development, language, mathematics, and phonemic awareness. It’s also important to acknowledge that Ignite was implemented during a transitory year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the district used various instructional models during the school year, including remote and hybrid instruction.
Despite the learning interruptions, the data shows that the students made measurable progress. Below are some charts to demonstrate the results of the case study.

Overall, children achieved substantial growth in all domains during the school year.
Narrowing the data down even further, children experienced an abundance of growth across all domains over an eight-month study period.
