YouTube Kids puts its entertaining videos up front on the home screen, but the app is also a great place to learn in a kid-friendly environment. Science, reading, math, and foreign languages are just a few of the channel genres to choose from. Kids who struggle with focus have difficulty sitting still and paying attention to the task at hand. YouTube Kids challenges children’s ability to focus while its carefully curated content offers opportunities for learning in an engaging format.
YouTube Kids’ in-app timer is a great feature that enables parents to set screen time limits for their kids. Additionally, it can be used to exercise children’s time management skills. Videos range from 22-minute episodes of popular kids’ shows to 4-5 minute clips. A child who is allowed a set number of minutes per day to use the app will need to choose which videos she wants to watch relatively quickly, and make sure the lengthier ones fit her allotted screen time.
