Step 1
See if an ABCmouse account is available at the home checkout page.

Step 2
If an account is available, you can set up your family’s account by entering your email address and a password. You will then see a welcome page. If an account is not available, you will see a page inviting you to join the waiting list.

Step 3
Once you've created your family's account, you can continue through the registration path. Create your Parent Profile and Child Profile by adding basic information and choosing an Avatar. You can have up to three children on your family’s account, and each child will have his or her own Child Profile.

Step 4
Then take an Assessment with your child to see what he or she already knows or needs to work on to do better in school! Based on the results, you can assign lessons that address those areas of improvement.

Step 5
Before your checkout time is over, please help your children take their Assessments again to see how much they have learned on ABCmouse!
