KinderTown App

Looking for an educational apps for students with skills in the 3-6 year old level?

KinderTown is an app to help you search for the best educational apps for 3-6 year olds. It provides a searchable data base of apps that provide “substantial educational value” as reviewed by parents, teachers and kids!

Here are some screen shots of the search tools for the iPad (the iPod version has a similar search tool):

Additional information on cost, rating, subject is provided by clicking on app titles from your search results:


What a helpful, free app for preschool, early childhood and teachers of special needs students. Although the categoires are standard educational skill areas, I found apps related to OT practice including a tanagram app, letter formation apps (Alpha Writer and Pocket Phonics) connect the dots, Spot the Dot that would be appropriate for visual motor and visual perceptual skill development for young children.

KinderTown just launched on November 11, 2011 so I expect they will be adding many more apps to their data base, both old and new!

Free and compatible with iPhone/iPod and iPad, I believe this is a worthwhile app to help with the search of appropriate free and pay for apps.  Try it out and pass the word on to the teachers of young children that you service for an easier method of searching for apps that would support their students needs!

Happy app searching!!
