PIKKU KAKKOSEN ESKARI
Pikku Kakkosen Eskari application is designed for preschool children in cooperation with professionals and educators in various fields. It’s a part of digital play services by Pikku Kakkonen. With the app, the child can explore and excel at their own pace in a goal-oriented and fun way. A familiar character Reppu-Heppu and his friends are there to encourage the child.
The application presents various topics that come up in pre-school education. All the content is designed so that an illiterate child can use them independently. Pikku Kakkosen Eskari will be updated regularly with new content. The following are already included:
