Preschool Apps

Best Apps for Preschoolers. Apps for preschoolers can open up a world of possibilities and fun for young children who are really starting to get interested in the world and are learning at a very fast pace. Here are some fun and educational apps for preschoolers that we rated and loved.


Read Me Stories by 8interactive is a great idea, however this idea gets lost in translation. Firstly, the app is quite slow and both parent and child get impatient waiting for it to load. Once loaded, you have 2 books that you can read but you can see books that are coming soon – inevitably the child wants to read one of the books that is not currently available, and this is where the frustration begins.

The iWriteWords iPhone / iPad app helps kids learn and write the alphabet, numbers and words. The lite version is definitely worth checking out first – and may even be fine for your needs. Since I used it so much, I decided to opt for the paid version which is currently $2.99.

In additional to the beautifully illustrated ebook for the iPad, you also have the option of having the ebook read to you in either English, Chinese, or in your own recorded voice. Most of the charm from this iPad app is the stories themseles, although there is also a spot the difference game in the iPad app too.

The Potty Predictor app covers potty training from a scheduling and reward aspect. The potty training cycle starts with a drink which starts an event that will result in success, try or accident. Nice idea, but just not quite enough for a $3.99 app.

The Wheels on the Bus app is a wonderful app for even the youngest iPhone loving kids. Part interactive book and part music app, you can choose between several languages or musical instruments. You can even have fun recording your own version of this popular song.

I had thought that I was over the whole potty training phase, unfortunately a little potty training regression has changed that. Luckily this means I have decided to review some potty training apps. Like most apps I review I started off by checking out potty training apps in the App Store. Obviously, there are many …

My 4 year old still loves this app and has been playing with it for about a year. The nice thing about this app is that the instructions are read aloud, so kids can work on this independently.

This free iPhone app is great for the preschooler or kindergartener – or anyone else just learning to tell time. The low key animation is cute without being distracting.

This is a favorite little iPhone app and one of the first ones that my 2 year old played with. There is a free version, but a game this cute deserves to be paid for.
