A safe place to learn and play

Brought to you by USA.gov, Kids.gov is the official kids' portal for the U.S. government. We link kids, parents and teachers to U.S. government information and services on the web from government agencies, schools, and educational organizations, all geared to the learning level and interest of kids.


Our Mission

To provide a safe place online where kids can create, play, and learn.


How The Site is Organized

Kids.gov is organized into three audiences: Grades K-5, Grades 6-8, and Educators. Each audience tab is divided into educational subjects like Arts, Math, and History. Within each subject, the websites are grouped as either government sites (Federal, state, military) or other resources (commercial, non-profit, educational). The sites listed under the other resources category are maintained by other public and private organizations. When users click on these links, they are leaving Kids.gov and are subject to the privacy and security policies of the owners/sponsors of the outside websites.

Please visit our Kids Privacy page for more information.


Social Media

We believe in delivering information and services in ways that are convenient for you. Check out our YouTube and TeacherTube channels and be sure to sign up for our weekly newsletter to get up to date information on what's happening in the Kids.gov community.
