Program Inspiring Learning and Discovery for Young Children

The nonprofit Khan Academy has launched Khan Academy Kids for early learners (aged 2–5). The education app includes thousands of original activities, books, videos, and lessons, and combines subjects such as math and reading with creative activities—for example, drawing and storytelling. Animated characters guide children through educational materials at the appropriate level for them. The lessons are standards-aligned (Common Core for kindergartners and Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework for preschoolers) and include social–emotional learning components. Khan Academy Kids also provides learning materials from National Geographic Young Explorer Magazine, Bellwether Media, and Skyship Entertainment, as well as tools for parent participation. The full app is available free of charge for iOS and is in beta for Android.
