How do I set up my AILA Sit & Play?

The set up is very simple. AILA Sit & Play comes preloaded with the virtual preschool program. Simply power on and start playing content in the default Broadcast Mode or visit the AILA Control screen to start a Learning Session, which does require a Wi-Fi connection.

We recommend regularly connecting your AILA Sit & Play to your home Wi-Fi for updates, new content and for starting a Learning Session. AILA Sit & Play can play content anywhere on the go without Wi-Fi, so learning and educational content can travel with your little one and you.

It will take 2 to 3 hours to fully charge. Once fully charged the device has up to 4 hours of battery life.

Step 7:  Start enjoying Animal Island Learning Adventure (AILA) 

Broadcast mode is the default mode for AILA Sit & Play. In this mode, educational content follows the scope and sequence of the early preschool curriculum without personalization.
While the default mode is broadcast, when your toddler is ready to learn, start a learning session with the mobile app or by visiting the Control screen. The learning session will start once the current video finishes. During learning sessions, our algorithm customizes future sessions based on your toddler’s level of engagement as determined by physical, emotional, and auditory reactions. Along with offering a sound introduction to learning concepts, the learning sessions offer focused learning that builds a child’s ability to pay attention. Each learning session, a stand-alone instructional unit designed to run approximately 15 minutes, follows our scope and sequence while our solution personalizes subsequent learning sessions by delivering the right content at the right time.
