Educational Apps for Parents

 

Following a competition to find the best educational apps for parents to engage young children in learning at home, a panel of experts has approved 6 with a focus on early literacy, language and communication.  

The 6 apps - published on the Hungry Little Minds website – are part of the government’s drive to help parents make informed decisions about the use of technology in creating positive learning environments at home  and are also recommended by the Department of Education. (These games are suitable for many of our children. Please ignore the age bands).
