How to take your kids to the park without leaving a trail of poop
Preschoolers can use a free app called Play It!
to help them navigate the halls of their classrooms, a clipart app called Preschooling.
The clipart art app has been created by the New York-based company, which was launched by children at the start of the year.
“Kids want to see their friends, their teachers, their classmates, and their friends’ friends.
We have a real desire to have that experience for them,” said Nisha Srivastava, who founded the app in February and is now working on its second release.
She said her app has become popular because it’s not only easy to use but also “really fun” to design.
She has been sharing the clipart apps on social media and has also been featured in media outlets including New York magazine and the Guardian.
The New York Times has dubbed the app as the “best way to learn and play in the city.”
Srivakavar said she was inspired to start Preschool Education after seeing kids struggling with school attendance.
“I have this really simple idea, that every kid deserves a great school experience,” she said.
She told The Hindu the app is a tool that parents can use to help their children.
“You just have to find a way to help your child, how to help him learn, what’s important to him, what are the things he needs to focus on.”
Play It!, which was developed by a team of children at New York City Public Schools, is free to use and requires no registration.
In an interview with the Times, Srivakovar said it was designed to help children navigate the school environment and find friends and activities they might miss while in class.
“There are a lot of things that are really fun for kids to do, and I think that it’s a way of connecting them with the world,” she added.
A child’s experience of a school is often defined by the amount of interaction they have with their peers, Sivavakavak said.
“So, to be able to give them a sense of community in their own school is really important.”
Sivava has worked to create a system that encourages collaboration between parents and their children, a process she said can be more effective in ensuring the best learning outcomes for the children.
Preschool education is a particularly critical time for children as they move through their early years.
A report released in September by the Pew Research Centre found that for children aged between three and five, school attendance has dropped by 8.4 percentage points since 2010.
“The trend is definitely a problem,” Sivakovav said.
Prescription drug use and obesity in schools is also a major concern for students, according to the report.
In 2017, the Department of Education estimated that 2.5 million students were in school without a parent present.
“We can’t let children become too dependent on drugs or other substances,” Srivava said.
The app has also come in for criticism for not having an official logo.
However, she said the app will eventually release a logo, which she plans to use in its future releases.
“At the end of the day, we’re creating an app that we think is really good and really unique,” she told The Hindustan Times.
“And that’s really exciting.”
