Great for 3+ years
I'm using this app apart from Leo's Pad, so I'm not sure how that connection works. But as an app on its own, I'm pretty impressed so far! After answering a few questions about my nearly 4 year old, I've been given a handful of activities to help him improve in multiple categories. The activities are broken down very clearly so that I can easily replicate them with my child. It's like customized pinterest for homeschoolers, without being overwhelming.
My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to be entirely age appropriate. I added my 15 month old son, with his birth year in the settings, hoping they might have good insight for how to introduce him into this learning environment as well. But even though his initial screener questions were quite different from his brother's, they were both given the same activities to do. For example, the first activity is to help your child research something on the internet, even if it's just google images. While I can find a way to possibly make this somewhat work for my busy, non-patient toddler, I know the activity as it's suggested will NOT work for most barely 1 year olds. It also took away from that magical personalized feel, when I saw both boys of two vastly different personalities and differing ages were given the same exact activities.
Overall, though, I am impressed with the activities themselves and the many resources within. I will keep using it for my preschooler at least, and hope they continue to update it. What a great app!
