ClickN Kids Online Learning Program Review





ClickN Kids Review by VS Grenier

I love when companies contact us for a review. Why? Because we have the best testers around . . . our kids! When we were contacted by ClickN Kids to do a review, I was really excited. We’ve had them as advertisers on our sites for a couple of years now. I have even thought about signing up for their program in the past. I just get busy and never got around to doing, but now I will after taking it for a test run with my five year old daughter. The programs are great tool to help your child retain the knowledge they learned during the previous school year and to prepared when they re-enter in the fall. However, another reason why I love the program is because my daughter is in speech therapy and has been for just over a year now. I work with her every night on target sounds and words with those target sounds. The flash cards are fine, but after using the ClickN Kids program for just a little over two weeks . . . my husband and I were both impressed at how fast she improved. 

The ClickN Kids programs are very user friendly. They are completely online-based learning programs, but do not be fooled into thinking this is like JumpStart. It’s not! Your child will have a set lesson plan, which you can easily access wherever there is internet access. With the secure parent password your child cannot access the setup area of your account so you have no worries letting them login on their own. In addition, you can choose between Reading and/or Spelling. The spelling program was a bit advanced for my daughter; however, I played around with it. I wasn’t a great speller when I was young and having a program like this would have helped me a lot.

If your child is having problems with reading and/or spelling, ClickN Kids is something you will want to check out. This is also a great program for teachers and schools. They even offer setup for classroom use making learning fun.

LikeKidZui™, a FREE child-safe browser program you can download and install on your computer to keep your children safe while using online programs, also recognizes ClickN Kids.  Your child can even use the KidZui program to go on the internet and use ClickN KIDS programs instead of your usual browser program, such as Internet Explorer.

Another great thing ClickN Kids does for their customer is once a month ClickN KIDS mails checks to their customers for referring new customers!  They pay you $5.00 for every home and school account. What a great way to say thank you for spreading the word about ClickN Kids.
