Lets admit it, online gaming can be a little too ugly for younger kids. The game sites – Yahooligans, PopCap Games, Games.com, AddictingGames – use online games to sell to the kids more complete versions of the games, to get children to click-through on ads, or worst of all, to get users to install their “free games” which can fill computers with spyware and pop-ups which make computers act like they’ve been possessed. And many game sites provide a chat service as part of the game, certainly not appropriate for young children. The brand name web sites have also become extremely commercial – Disney, Lego, Crayola, Warner Brothers. If you are like most parents of children under 10, you would like to have your children play where it’s safe to click on any of the buttons. Young children deserve games designed to entertain and to teach, not to sell or to advertise.
There are some great kids’ games and sites out there. The Time4Learning Playground relies on a suite of licensed games as well as a white list of great online sites and activities like PBS Kids, BBC Interactive, Sesame Street, Pauly’s Playhouse, VeggieTales, and Starfall. The games and sites are carefully chosen and the navigation between them is a fun simple and safe interface. Time4Learning NEVER tries to sell more products to your children.
My children's favorite part of the day is their time on Time4Learning. This is the easiest and most consistently productive curriculum we've used!
My kids can work independently or with my involvement. Time4Learning has enriched their education and simplified my life!
The Time4Learning Playground has fun games and the children love getting there and exploring it. The children quickly accept the stricture that they have to do their studies to get to the playground. Just like eating their meal before dessert. Or homework before TV. Time4Learning relies on and reinforces this basic principle. Children find this structure both comforting and motivating.
Good For Them
The Two Player Games section is one of the most popular parts of the entire Time4Learning service. These games are for two people to play together at the same computer. The Time4Learning Playground is mix of educational materials, edutainment, and “casual” games. They are designed to be fun but not all-consuming. The goal is entertainment, not addiction. We share many parents’ concern about overuse of electronic entertainment, particularly at a young age, and its risk of stunting social and physical development. In fact, the initial motivation behind the creation of Time4Learning was to establish a suite of appropriate games for kids and an automated method of managing their daily time on the computer.
