Top Preschool Apps

Today I decided to list the apps that showed the biggest improvement in my son’s learning ability. I was surprised at just how many educational preschool apps we’ve actually tried out. A lot of them were duds, but below are the ones that actually worked.

These are the preschool apps that I have my son use on a regular basis that get the best results.

I hope this helps your child. If you would like to know additional tools that can help your child, then you absolutely must check out our post on the best educational tools for young children.

Special Notes:

  1. To give you some idea of the potential available – my son knows basic Spanish words, can count to 10 in three different languages, and is speaking on a level a full year above him.
  2. It is not just about sitting an app in front of your kid just to give you a moment to yourself. Kids are interested in what their parents are interested in, so be present with your toddler when he or she is learning.
The apps featured are linked to iTunes but many are also available on Google Apps. Some of the prices and content may have changed since this list was compiled. If you notice any changes or have some apps that need to be included on this list, please comment below!

Check out the TOP PRESCHOOL APPS listed below. I have already tested out many preschool apps on my son so I can tell you of the ones NOT to get as well, if you’re interested.

The Longer You’re Not Taking Action, The Longer for Your Child’s Mind to Develop

The biggest mistake parents make is relying solely on educational videos, apps, books, songs, etc. For the best results, find the tools that you and your child can use together that are fun.

If you want your child to learn quickly and easily, check out these educational preschool songs!
