iPad Apps and Online Activities

This Month's Recommended Apps


  • If using youtube at home, use the youtube kids app.  This app attempts to eliminate any inappropriate content, though should still be used under adult supervision. 
  • The Curious George Apps are great for nursery age children, the 'Curious About Shapes and Colours' app is a particular favourite of mine.
  • There is a range of great Peppa Pig apps that cover a variety of topics.
