A+ app for kids!
My daughter(age 7) used Khan Academy in school prior to the 2020 pandemic. Our school district listed Khan Academy as a resource to use when schools began closing in March. We used it in addition to her other school work during that time.
We decided to try this app for our son that is preschool age but needs just a little more time before introduction to a public setting and teachers; he’s our spirited one. Our son (age 4) LOVES this app, he willingly selects Khan Academy when we give him screen time. He actually stays engaged for long periods of time and has fun doing it. He uses the information learned from his lessons and applies it to his toys or in real life settings. He’s even begun to read short stories!!
In conclusion, my personal opinion is that this app is amazing. If you have children that are already in school and need a little something to stay engaged; get this app. If you have a wild tornado child (our son) that has shown interest in learning but they are not quite ready to be put into a school setting; get this app. They go at their own pace and advance to the next subject after mastering the first. They also offer additional resources on the website for your kids, such as circle time videos, free printable worksheets. I wish more educational websites/apps worked like Khan Academy! Again, my own personal opinion and each family/child is different, but Khan Academy is a perfect fit for us.

Very well-designed for actual learning
My 4-year-old has been cruising through several apps over the summer and most seem to be designed to entertain kids with a hope that they’ll learn something, or they’re a mashup of kid shows and other “silly” content. I’m not saying they’re *bad* but my daughter is definitely more checked out after being on them after a while. They also don’t take into account kids different learning levels. The apps are the same for every kid.
Khan Academy Kids is not like that. You can pick the difficulty level to match your kid’s ability which is awesome. I set up two profiles for my daughter. One set at kindergarten level that she can use in her own, and one at 1st grade level that she can do with a bit of monitoring if she gets stuck. It’s awesome.
The whole experience is designed to promote learning in a way that’s engaging for kids but not silly. Everything has been designed with purpose. There are so many small details that I’ve noticed in the app that help my daughter get unstuck. They really do such a good job keeping kids focused on the right things and instructing in a way that is easy to understand and relatable for kids. Even the characters voices are soothing and child-like, as if it was a veteran kindergarten teacher speaking. Brilliant all around!
