As a homeschooling mom I am always on the lookout for great educational apps for the kids. So when Curious World asked me to review their app, I jumped at the chance. What I didn’t realize was just how much the app contained! There are tons of activities for the kids to play and in a safe environment where I didn’t have to worry about ads for my preschooler to click on. Curious World has made its way into our homeschooling efforts, and I’m very excited about it.
Curious World is subscription-based app that delivers an expansive library of early learning activities that are tailored to children ages 3 – 7. Via iPad or iPhone, children can “tap into wonder” by learning through play in a trusted digital environment where every video, game and book is mapped to key learning areas and recommended based on your child’s age and developmental stage. You can sign up for a free trial on the Curious World website and receive 30 days of unlimited access to Curious World’s premium subscriber experience.
There are many opportunities to read, practice math skills, and just have fun for all the different levels.[KH2] The Curious World app is available for Apple iPhones and iPads running iOS 8.0+ and can be downloaded from the App Store. We downloaded it onto two of our iPads, so that my two youngest girls could both enjoy the app. We were able to set up user IDs for the kids, so each of them has access to games and activities that fit their age range making sure that our youngest doesn’t get frustrated and her older sister doesn’t get bored.
As a subscriber you get access to an expansive collection of videos, books & games – all curated by global learning company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. New activities are added weekly, so the kids will have new things to try all the time!
I love the fact that I can track their progress in the parent dashboard, both on the app and from my computer. The parent dashboard provides a summary of the child’s learning activities and preferences, so that parents can see how they are spending their time across learning areas and content types. If the child loves (or hates) math activities or prefers books over videos and games, the dashboard will provide you insight, so that you can encourage them to work on their non-preferred skills.
You get access to all these resources when you sign up for a monthly or yearly subscription. You can try it out with a free trial, which you are free to cancel at any time, so that you have the chance to fall in love with it just like we did.
