Excellent preschool reading and math skill app

This is a really excellent app, not for the least of which because it is FREE (truly free). There is a ton of content in this app. My son especially enjoys the books. He is difficult to read books to because he wants to talk about the pictures, or which words rhyme, or his feet, instead of listening to me, and doesn’t want to read aloud himself (though he can), if he is even willing to sit still at all. The books in the app can be read without sound or the app will read it to you. He usually chooses to have it read aloud to him, and he actually sits and listens patiently 😅. The tasks started off too easy so my son became bored at first but I encouraged him to keep going because they do get harder. That would probably be my only complaint: it takes a while to get to level appropriate material because of the linear progression. Of course, my son purposefully gets it wrong sometimes to see what happens, then laughs his head off, so maybe it’s not the app’s fault. The rewards are cute, though, and keep him interested. There is both online and offline content, and it is easy to check your child’s progress. A++.

Absolutely in love!!

My kids and I love this app so much. I homeschool my 4 babies, Using Khan Academy for my 9 and 14 year old. It was so hard finding an app that was free and appropriate for my 3 yr old twins. A lot of apps seemed a bit advanced in some areas or not advanced enough in others or appeared to be free then had all kinds of in app purchases.
When I found out Khan Academy kids was launching I was extremely excited. This has been a great experience. Being able to adjust the difficulty level as they progress has been great making for very easy transitions. I can’t wait to see what’s next to come with Khan Academy kids!
I tell everyone I know with small children about how amazing this app is. An actual free app that is fun, easy to use for parents and especially for kids, that allows you to easily track their progress. Khan Academy kids is by far the best I’ve ever use!!!! ❤️❤️❤️

THE best kids’ app

As a mother and a teacher, I’ve personally tried no less than 20 educational apps for kids age 2 to 6, and Khan Academy Kids is doubtlessly THE best one! I’m so glad and grateful that Khan Academy finally launched this awesome app for younger kids! I’ve just recommended it to all my friends and parents.

1. The lessons are the perfect combination of education+fun. They seem to be more age-appropriate in the difficulty level than other apps I’ve tried, and therefore more engaging to younger learners .

2. It’s fast. No need to waste your or your kids’ time waiting for the next lesson to load up.

3. IT’S FREE! Thank you Khan Academy for your goodwill to give the learning opportunity to less privileged children!

A few recommendations for parents:
1. We should always try to stay with our children when they are using this app. In other words, don’t let the screen be the parent. That way, we can be aware of their academic progress and able to offer help. We don’t need to sit right next to them, but should be within a short distance or in the same room to be able to hear/see what they are working on.
2. We should have a time limit for screen even with great apps like KAK. My personal preference for my kids and students is no more than 60 min / day.

Anyway, I hope everyone enjoy this app and thank you Khan Academy!
