I recently had a chance to review an app called Kids Academy. As a mother to young learners AND as an elementary teacher, I think this app warrants children using their screen time minutes. The app provides engaging hands-on learning experiences for Preschool and Kindergarten aged children.  Kids can learn through game-like play with many of the activities {yay for kids!}, but academics and early learning skills are at the core of each {yay for parents and teachers!}. Also, make sure to check out their free printable kindergarten worksheets!!

Here is some information provided by the sponsor:

The Preschool Education Center is an all-in-one educational app created for children and toddlers by the team at Kids Academy! With already over 10 million downloads worldwide, they have just released a long-awaited update to this amazing app! The app is designed to cover all aspects of early childhood education. Children learn about the alphabet, reading, writing, building vocabulary and even developing math skills. Based on the proven Montessori method, the Preschool Education Center app offers a number of fun games that help master essential learning skills through play, making learning fun!

The app is set up with three different performance levels, so you can choose which is best for your child. There are four sections that you can choose from to work on: READING, WRITING, MATH and LIBRARY. Within each section are a variety of activities.

To go straight to the source, enjoy a review from my 4-year old daughter:

A few of my daughter’s favorites include:

  • Education videos teaching nursery rhymes and songs
  • Farmer’s Market matching game
  • Fun Geometry to explore shapes
  • Connect the Dot Counting

Connect-The-Dot-Counting helps with number order

There were a few bugs that I ran across while playing, but the Kids Academy representatives that I contacted were quick to troubleshoot with me and/or fix the issue in a timely manner. I would rate both the app and their customer service as high quality.

One troubleshooting trick I was introduced to, though not at the direct fault of Kids Academy, is one I thought I would share with Ipad users. I learned if the mute button is locked, sound doesn’t work in some apps (while working in others). Namely, this affected the Kids Academy app. Once it is unlocked, sound worked fine… And I learned a new troubleshooting trick to help in the future.


Sorting is one of the many Core Standards that is taught and practiced in Kids Academy. And it just so happens, it was my daughter’s favorite.
