It had to come eventually ‘top educational apps for pre-schoolers’ as the media market targeted mainly young adults the audience then turned to children yet in an educational way. I am not a huge fan of kids and computers but if an app is genuinely educational then I’m for it. I scoured a few sites and found these three for starters.
The Numberlys is a new App that goes through the stages of pre-school to nearly ready school. The design is great and we love the ideas for parents to get involved and I promise it will cause quite a few laughs. It is so creative and promises to engage your young pre-schooler with the clever graphics and story.
As it is not in colour we were interested in how children perceived it, but amazingly the attention was incredible. It starts with a story about the world and the alphabet in a most unique way and will be very curious to kids.
Every kid loves a fairy tale and Princess Fairy Tale Maker is perfect for the smaller media devices like tablets and it allows each child to create their very own fairy tale and also gives them the chance to tell it!
Anybody involved with a child as a parent, brother, sister or guardian can enjoy this App as it enables a child to really bring out their own imagination and be commended for it.
Finally Bugs and Numbers, as we all know kids love bugs and not so much numbers… They will be totally besotted with this App as it promises lots of fun with great media and also has a clever way of teaching maths. Kids love the game Atmosphere and this App promises that and they can actually up their game as it has three settings.
These online games and resources are clever and I do believe in a controlled pattern they can become essential to your child’s growth and development while introducing them to online media in a positive way. My classes include music and I find my kids really adapt to media yet will receive it happily as a reward for good work.
