KinderTown first got my attention when our own Alicia Chang told me about them and suggested why not to have a talk with them. As she is EDUKWEST’s expert for early childhood education, I was of course interested to have a chat.
So this holiday season I sat down with Brennan Knotts, COO of KinderTown to learn more about what they do.
As mentioned above, KinderTown targets early learners or probably better put their parents. The startup wants to become the destination site where busy parents go when they’re looking for recommendations and educational or learning apps for their kids. The target group are young learns aged 3 to 6.
But KinderTown doesn’t only want to be an app store for early childhood learning. As we all know, due to the immense numbers of apps available curation becomes increasingly important. In our interview Brennan talks more about how KinderTown reviews, evaluates and what points play a role during the approval process of each app before it gets a recommendation from them.
If you’re a parent or an app developer for young learners you should be aware that KinderTown for now only accept and recommend apps for iphone, iPod touch and iPad. Talking price points, the vast majority of apps I have seen on their website cost between $0.99-$2.99.
