It is really important that we do as much as we can to keep children safe online both at Nursery and at home. Below you will find a range of information that you will hopefully find useful.


Child friendly search engine and apps


If your child is accessing the internet then we suggest you use these platforms to do so.

  • Kiddle - A visual search engine for children powered by Google. Kiddle uses it's own filters to stop inappropriate content appearing.
  • Swiggle - A search engine for children designed to provide a safer environment for children. Results are filtered using Google Safe Search and educational resources prioritised.
  • YouTube Kids - Specifically designed for children under five years to explore a range of child friendly videos and it can be downloaded for free.



Resources to support talking to children
