The list of kids’ websites

The list of kids’ websites

We prepared a list of kids’ web resources we consider appropriate and even useful for children. However, don’t forget that any websites, including those for kids, can get infected or hacked. In the ‘Age’ column we included approximate appropriate age, but don’t consider it a strict requirement, it’s rather a recommendation.
