Finding inspirational ideas to educate and entertain your children is easy with Kidadl. We are your trusted friend, your new home for finding family edutainment; content that is designed to make learning enjoyable and fun.
Thanks to Kidadl, you won’t have to start more endless Google searches. Our content is trustworthy, curated, personalised, highly relevant and totally usable, whatever the ages of your children or your stage in the parenting journey.
Kidadl makes educating and entertaining your children easy, enjoyable, straightforward and convenient.
We provide an array of resources, leaving you to decide how to fulfil your child’s potential and be the best parent that you can be. We address all aspects of the parenting journey and help support the critical connection between education and entertainment.
We want to be there to help families unlock a world of possibilities. To achieve this, we cover a breadth and depth of content and a range of topics based on the theory of Multiple intelligences.
We have matched development psychologist Howard Gardner's renowned theory of multiple intelligences and mapped them across the areas of interests that underpin our content.
All our content is based on the eight multiple intelligences that Howard Gardner describes in his 1983 book, Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences. In this book, Gardner argues that all humans have different kinds of intelligences and that in order to fulfill their full range of potential, abilities and talents, humans have several kinds of intelligence, rather than just one.
Our aim is to segment our edutainment content into these interests (and intelligences) so that parents can easily find the content that is suited to each member of their family. These are the areas of interest that our content is divided into and their corresponding intelligences:
Our mission is to be every family's trusted friend - we want to support you throughout your parenting journey, so you can be the best parent possible, helping you to achieve your purpose of educating and entertaining your children, enabling them to fulfil their potential.

Kidadl's content is created by parents for parents and is written by trained writers, editors and contributors who are experts in their field. From teachers and educational psychologists to mummy bloggers and influencers, we have a carefully selected group of like-minded parents who support our in-house teams.
All Kidadl content is thoroughly researched and reviewed by a group of selected educational experts. Our team of writers cover a broad range of educational subjects and stages. Our content is curated, and we only recommend ideas and content that we would do ourselves as parents and would deem suitable for our own children.
Our team continually researches the best things to do in the entertainment and education space, and we regularly update our articles as part of an in-house maintenance timetable and when we receive information updates on existing content.

At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world.
If it is brought to our attention by a parent that there may be an issue with any aspect of our content, for example, if we are made aware that any of our content is unclear, or features old or inaccurate information, we feed it back to the relevant teams immediately and make any corrections required.
Kidadl provides inspiration for everything from family days out to online classes, arts, crafts and science experiments.
We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age, but these are a guide.
We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability of each activity.
We're friendly, warm and helpful, but also bold, inspiring and upbeat. We're on a mission to inspire people; to give them the confidence to try something new. We are passionate about what we do, and we aim to do it with conviction, creativity and imagination.
Our language is inclusive of all parents, whatever the make-up of their family and whichever stage of the parenting journey they are on.
