Pre-School/Primary Games

Great games for very young players have been growing as a field over the past twenty years. Now there are many publishers emerging in the US that specialize in games for the 2-6 year old group. When looking at games, remember that the focus should be on the child’s freedom of play and not a tightly scripted game. Look for options and opportunities to change up the play with variations. Social interaction during game play is also critical for this age range. Finally, be cautious of wild learning promises that aren’t backed up by data.
