37 Free Educational Websites and Apps for Kids

Coronavirus has disrupted the lives of an estimated 30 million children in the United States. In March, 94% of America’s schools closed risking wide-scale learning loss amongst children. As school systems across the nation remain closed and the pandemic continues to spread globally, children – especially the poorest and marginalized – are facing increasing health, education and safety risks.

Save the Children believes that decisions to re-open schools must be made at the community level. As such, we will continue to support and supplement learning – whether it takes place in-person, virtually or in a hybrid model, in the nation’s most rural communities.

If you have access to the internet at home, here is a list of fun, free educational websites for kids as well as phone and tablet apps to help keep kids learning during the coronavirus outbreak. Most sites include reading and math games, videos, stories and more and all indicate what are age and grade appropriate.

We’ve organized this list into two categories – preschool and elementary school.
