Khan Academy Kids is a free series of game activities staring bright animal characters. Matching animals and photos, solving maths, social scenarios or enjoying some art time, Khan Academy Kids provides a playful framework.

Play involves, tapping and dragging to perform actions and solve puzzles. The novelty here is that the games are free and can be played on smartphone or tablet. More than a game, this is a huge library of content for children 2-7. It's like a build-your-own interactive Sesamea Street show that can be tailored by you or your child.

The result is a whimsical, character-led series of activities and stories that engage young children in core subjects like early literacy, reading, writing, language, and math, while encouraging creativity and building social-emotional skills.

The game dynamically adapts to the child's performance, ensuring they are presented with activities, books, educational videos, and creative lessons that allow them to learn at their own pace, creating an individualized experience for every learner.

"While most early learning apps focus on a narrow skill, our free program contains a breadth of learning materials across math, language arts, and social-emotional learning, aligned to the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework and Common Core."
