Educational Computer Games for Kids (Part 1)

There are all sorts of educational computer games for kids and those games are fun to play while the children are learning lots of new skills. These games are on the market from preschool and older.

Some teaches reading, typing, math, logic and even languages. On this page we focus on educational software made for

preschool and kindergarten.

Educational computer games can help the child become familiar at the subject or can be used as support to strengthen weaknesses on that subject or skill.

The good thing is that most kids like these kind of games so much that
they don’t realize that they are learning or improving their skills. The
most popular educational software programs are from the manufacturers Reader Rabbit and Jumpstart.

Although playing with friends and family is lots of fun and very educational for the social skills, there isn’t always somebody around to play with. The educational software for kids is played by the child alone and is a very good boredom buster and the child will learn or improve various skills while having fun.

Because most children will like this so much, it’s advisable for the
parent to guide the child and to set a time limit the child spend behind
a screen (computer and television). The variation in having passive and
active time is important for a healthy lifestyle and the development of
the child.

We made this selection of best educational computer games based on the following criteria:
* Fun to play
* Educational
* Quality
We hope you can find the educational software for your child that suits your child’s need and interest. Have fun and grow!
