Recommended by teachers.

A large and varied collection of apps is installed on the iPad4Kids, which has been carefully compiled by teachers and our subject experts. All apps have been selected based on Lehrplan 21 for the school levels (cycles 1 to 3). The apps are adapted to the respective school cycle the child is in.

«We want to offer the children a safe iPad with age-appropriate content that they can also use for lessons. The pre-installed apps are perfect for independent learning and discovery. With many apps, children can realise creative projects and, for example, make films, record their own radio plays, make music or draw. This is the best way for them to learn how to use a tablet – even without constant supervision by parents or teachers.»

What apps are installed on the iPad? Accordion open/close do not match

A large and varied collection of apps is installed on the iPad, which has been carefully compiled by teachers and subject experts. All apps were selected based on Lehrplan 21 for the respective school level (cycles 1 to 3). The apps differ according to the school cycle of the children and can be roughly divided into the following categories:

Basic Storytelling Research
Photography Foreign languages Childcare
Learning Reading Reference
Organising Presenting Producing/creative design

Sketching Playing Practising and consolidating
Are the pre-installed apps appropriate for my child's age? Accordion open/close do not match

Yes, we have put together an individual collection of apps for each school cycle of Lehrplan 21. We will inform you of a cycle change in advance by e-mail. At the time of the change, some apps will be uninstalled on the iPad and others reinstalled. If desired, a cycle change can also be postponed by one year.

Can I download other apps to iPad4Kids? Accordion open/close do not match

To download other apps to the iPad, you need your own Apple ID. You can find instructions here: support.apple.com

I have several children of school age. Do I need more than one iPad4Kids? Accordion open/close do not match

The pre-installed apps on the iPad are geared towards the child's school cycle. Many apps also save your child's learning progress. For optimal use of the iPad, we therefore recommend that each child has their own iPad.

How are the devices managed? Accordion open/close do not match

With the software Jamf (Mobile Device Management) we can manage the devices directly from our location. This includes, for example, defining restrictions, deploying apps and running updates. Thanks to this software, the iPad is delivered in its original packaging and is ready for use in just a few steps.

With the Jamf Parent app, parents can adjust various settings individually to the child's needs, such as screen time. The app is available for iOS and Android.
