MiniSchool is a quality, fun and educational app with a FREE lite version

Working with my son and talking to others with special needs children, I have realized one important aspect to an educational app is flexibility. Some children struggle with certain subjects while others absorb information like a sponge. Quality apps which allow children to continue to work on basic concepts as long as necessary but also offer room for educational growth are standouts. One such standout app I have recently worked with is MiniSchool by Divine ApS. With six diverse educational activities, this app is great for home or school environments. Test the app out for yourself with the FREE Lite version, or purchase full content for $2.99.

MiniSchool received an astounding 4.5 stars from Smart Apps for Kids:

Bottom Line: MiniSchool offers a collection of six educational activities with varying levels of difficulty to help teach and reinforce several academic skills. Whimsical ocean-themed scenes and characters keep children entertained while working for a ribbon of success. Though many of the activities benefit younger children, the varying difficulty levels allow this app to grow with the child through multiple years.
