Interactive Web Resources for Young Children



The Internet is filled with many wonderful activities for the young child. The learning opportunities that are available will allow the parent and child to engage in "online" time that is filled with animation, sound, and movement. These websites are among the best, have very few advertisements, and encourage exploration and verbal expression through their ability to be interactive.

Parent and child enjoy computer time together!
