A world of learning and fun, made just for kids
We created YouTube Kids to make it safer and simpler for children to explore the world through online video – from their favourite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or make slime), and everything in between. There's also a whole suite of parental controls, so you can tailor the experience to your family's needs.
A safer online experience for kids
We use a mix of filters, user feedback and human reviewers to keep the videos in YouTube Kids family friendly. But no system is perfect and inappropriate videos can slip through, so we're constantly working to improve our safeguards and offer more features to help parents create the right experience for their families.
*** Please note that the YouTube Kids app isn't available in Quebec at this time. For more information, please read our Parental Guide at https://support.google.com/youtubekids?p=ytk_quebec***
Get the scoop on all the control features available to you:
Create up to eight child profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations and settings.
Select collections of channels on a variety of subjects by trusted partners and YouTube Kids.
PARENT APPROVED CONTENT:
Make sure that you're in control of what your children watch and hand-pick the videos, channels and collections of channels that they can see.
Found a video or channel that you don't want your child to watch? Block it to automatically remove it from all of your children's profiles.
Alert us immediately by reporting videos that shouldn't be in the app. The video will be sent to us for fast review.
Turn search on so that your children can access more videos. Turn search off for a more contained experience by limiting the experience to channels that have been verified by YouTube Kids.
Set up a timer to put limits on how long your children can use the app.
Keep tabs on what your children are watching in the app.
WATCH ON TV:

Bug fixes and stability improvements
Ratings and Reviews
Since the app was updated it says it's not available in my region. It had been working perfectly for months until this update. And when I click to visit the site, there's no options there to fix it! My child and I are very disappointed!
Disturbing content sneaking in that may go unnoticed by parents
Very inappropriate videos have been sneaking in while my daughter uses this app. I can’t trust it any more after discovering Peppa Pig and friends engaging in violence and other inappropriate and disturbing content disguised as children’s videos. So sad, because the idea of YT Kids is great but in reality, it’s too easy for the bad stuff to get in. Please create an app that only provides trusted and safe videos for children.
Used to be much better
Obviously the people who update this app don't have kids. Who puts ad's on a kids app? My kid loses it. I'll gladly pay if you loose the ads before videos.
