Wow! Just what my kids needed!
Kahn Academy Kids is the best educational kids app I have found for my kiddos. The lessons are fun and engages my kids making it exciting to learn. We now use this app daily as a supplement to what they are learning in school. I have a 3 and 6 year old and both of them have their own profile and things we are working on. My 6 year old is learning how to read and he loves reading the books on the app out loud to me. My 3 year old is learning her letter sounds and this app actually pronounces the letter sound correctly for her. Super impressed by that as I haven’t found that to be common practice with education all apps - even on leap frog academy. The app is very intuitive to use and easy for my kids. I appreciate this because I can leave them to work on it independently or work alongside them - whichever I choose. Again, this is hard to come by. I also love how they get still get challenged by the lessons and actually grow and learn without feeling left discouraged. It gently nudges them if they get something incorrect. The math portion is wonderful as well and something I will be exploring more of. We have only had the app a week and there is SO much we can use this for. I felt compelled to leave a review already for the amount we have already used and enjoyed Khan Academy. Download this without hesitation for your child. You won’t regret it.

We sincerely appreciate your encouraging review! So glad to hear how well Khan Kids is working out for your family.
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.
