FREE AND FUN
Our vision is to be the source for childhood learning on the internet available from anywhere and without charge. Learning has to be fun! E-Learning for kids integrates gaming and learning to make our courseware more effective. To make the learning fun we present our courses as a-learning journey;while acquiring all their new skills, the children travel around the world learning more about the 7 continents, countries, cities, oceans and cultures.
With e-learning for kids we offer free, best-in-class curriculum based learning for children ages 5-12 in Math, Science, Environmental skills, Computer skills, Health, Language and Life skills.
We currently offer 800+ e-lessons and are continuously developing new ones. This includes the entire primary education grade KG to 6 in math and science. Our complete Math World curriculum offers 336 e-lessons and our Science World curriculum offers 213 e-lessons..
All e-lessons are currently in English, we’ve started the translation of Math World into Spanish.
The design and development of courses are guided by learning topics that are part of the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum which is internationally recognized and used in 138 countries. The IB offers an education that focuses on teaching children to think critically and independently. The IB prepares students to succeed in a world where facts and fiction merge in the news, and where asking the right question is a crucial skill that will allow them to flourish.

The following button will bring you to PDFs showing the content / learning goals for Math World and Science World.
At our homepage children can start the lessons by clicking the button “Kids - Start Here”. Then they choose a specific topic (Math, Science, Environmental skills, Computer skills, Health, Language and Life skills) and/or a specific grade (K, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6).
In the International Baccalaureate Curriculum the grades K to 6 corresponds with ages:
Grade 4 (age 9-10)
Grade 5 (age 10-11)
Grade 6 (age 11-12)
Grade K (age 4-5)
Grade 1 (age 6-7)
Grade 2 (age 7-8)
Grade 3 (age 8-9)
help picking the right GRADE
It’s very important children start at the right level, have fun in learning and work at their own pace. Please help the children selecting the level that is not too easy, but also not too difficult for them. There are two ways to do this.
You can either check the learning goals yourself to determine the correct level for your child(ren).
Or you can let the child take several lessons to determine his or her level. For example, if your child has the age of 6, please let him or her take one lesson in grade K, one lesson in grade 1, and one lesson in grade 2 to determine at which level he or she is.
