Why Do Kids Love EDArcade?
Instead of cutting down on kids’ gaming hours, we have instead harnessed the educational potential that games have to offer. We have designed a unique gaming platform which keep kids entertained and engaged in their learning, earning us the “Best Gamification Platform” title from Kids Judge Bett!
What is EDVille?
EDVille is our integrated PSHE learning package that works hand-in-hand with our PSHE games. In EDVille, kids care for and grow their own garden, compare their gardens to one another and watch exclusive PSHE cartoon lessons as they play. By subscribing to EDVille, your child will gain access to over 20 animated lessons, all of the other EDArcade games and information bites related to plants and the world around us.
All our characters are fully voiced and given an individual personality and background, helping your kids connect and engage with them.
We pride ourselves in the diversity and inclusivity of our cast which is guaranteed to make your kids have their favourites!
