Kids are full of questions, and the internet has the answers. The problem is, the internet isn’t always the most kid-friendly place. Search engines can be a great tool for kids to find the information they want, but even with parental and school network blocks, search engines like Google can lead children to answers they aren’t quite ready for. Thankfully, there are kid friendly options that will allow students to search the internet in a safer environment.
Google has recently created it's own kid friendly search engine: Kiddle. From the Kiddle site:
Kiddle, powered by Google’s safe search, is a kid safe visual search engine. Kiddle returns results for each query as follows (in the order shown):
- Safe sites and pages written specifically for kids. Handpicked and checked by Kiddle editors. Typically, results 1-3.
- Safe, trusted sites that are not written specifically for kids, but have content written in a simple way, easy for kids to understand. Handpicked and checked by Kiddle editors. Typically, results 4-7.
- Safe, famous sites that are written for adults, providing expert content, but are harder for kids to understand. Filtered by Google safe search. Typically, results 8 onwards.
Since Kiddle results are either handpicked and checked by our editors or filtered by Google safe search, you know you get kid-oriented results without any explicit content. In case some bad words are present in a search query, our guard robot will block the search.
