I learned of three recommended safe sites for kids recently, from a The Week magazine highlight from pcmag.com. How is that for a convoluted introduction?
Safesurfer.org Is a kid haven full of games, resources, and news. Helps entertain kids while pointing them to sites they can safely enjoy on the rest of the Web.
Exploratorium.edu The home of San Francisco’s Exploratorium museum. A great resource for kids interested in learning about the world around them, and how it works. Youth oriented primers on biology, astronomy, and other scientific fields.
Totlol.com YouTube (not affiliated) for kids. All videos posted are screened and determined fit for kids 6mos. to 6yrs.
