Dr Panda’s Daycare App
Age Recommendation 2-6 years.
This is an app that all children who go to daycare will relate to. It has many of the familiar settings, routine times and play equipment you will find in most early childhood environments.
The next best thing about this app is the amount of decision making it allows the child to do. Everything from which bed each critter will sleep in, to what kind of toys they want to play with. There is so much of this throughout the game. I especially enjoyed the kitchen scene opening up all the cupboards, putting things in and taking them out. Emptying the fridge was pretty fun, as too setting the table and getting ready for a party.
The game provides children with four different settings. In the kitchen, outdoor playground, inside playroom and sleep area. The sleep room is my daughter’s favourite as she enjoys choosing the beds with the different coloured blankets, rocking the babies, turning on some music, closing the curtains and watching the light show come to life.
While preschoolers would enjoy this game, I feel it’s true love will be with the experienced iPad littlies, those in their late toddlers, early threes. Such a great idea to make an app about one of the most common early childhood experiences a kid can have… daycare.
