iPad & iPhone apps for kids. Using high technologies in preschool children’s education.
Most of all children love to play. A playing child explores the reality surrounding him, his inner world. Playing develops infant’s senses, helping to accumulate visual, acoustical, tactile, gustatory sensations. This period lays foundation for child’s cognitive and physical activity.
As years pass, the play becomes more conscious, but its purpose – world knowledge – remains the same.

All of us can run, but world champions are those people who could sustain all necessary loads and trainings. So, being engaged with the child, don’t forget that the result will be directly proportional to the time spent and efforts done. And as primary activity of children at the given age stage is playing, the parents’ goal is to make this game as productive as possible without restraining thus interests of the child, considering all important points in the education of a harmoniously developed person.
