Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that even though PBS Parents Play & Learn includes mini-games for kids, it’s designed to be a parent resource to give adults ideas for activities to do with preschoolers to enhance learning and develop literacy skills. Parents can choose from 13 situation or location categories (such as “Bath Time,” “Grocery Store,” “In the Car,” or “Restaurant”) and find activities to do with babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. Many of the activities involve talking to little ones about what they’re doing and seeing, which is what early learning is all about. The app is available in both Spanish and English, and parents can receive daily messages with other ideas in-app or by push notification.

PBS Parents Play & Learn is a Education app that is designed for those 2.  The app has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 and a learning rating of 3 out of 5.

PBS Parents Play & Learn is available for Free On The Following Devices:

iPod Touch

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

The engagement for kids comes from interacting with their parents rather than from the design of the app or the mini-games. The games themselves are quite simple compared to those in other preschool learning apps, but PBS Parents Play & Learn is about face-to-face interaction and not the games.

The Support Level for PBS Parents Play & Learn is about a 3 out of 5.

Spanish- and English-language options serve a diverse range of learners and parents. The activities are designed for young learners from babies to preschoolers, and parents will get extension ideas through in-app messages or push notifications.
