The child is curious. He wants to make sense out of things, find out how things work, gain competence and control over himself and his environment, and do what he can see other people doing. He is open, perceptive, and experimental. He does not merely observe the world around him, He does not shut himself off from the strange, complicated world around him, but tastes it, touches it, hefts it, bends it, breaks it. To find out how reality works, he works on it. He is bold. He is not afraid of making mistakes.

Welcome Parents

The above children's websites have been specifically selected to provide entertaining and educational content for children as young as 1 year.  The activities, stories, videos and songs on these websites assist young children in learning letter recognition, phonics, reading, science, art, music, problem solving, as well as basic computer navigation, mouse and keyboard skills.  These sites all have visual interface that allow children who can not yet read to navigate them independently.  Early readers will find these sites equally enjoyable.  We hope you enjoy these sites and most of all enjoy laughing, learning and growing with your children.

Please Note:  While these sites have been selected for their family friendly nature, they are maintained by third party providers and as such we are unable to provide any guarantee as to their content.  The sites may contain outside links that have not been approved for children or content of which you may not personally approve.  We recommend that the family computer be placed in a common area that allows you to supervise your children's internet use  in the same way as you would monitor what they are accessing on the television.
