A safer online experience for children
We work hard to make the videos on YouTube Kids suitable for families and use a mix of automated filters created by our engineering teams, human review, and parent feedback to protect our youngest users online.

Personalize your child’s experience with parental controls
Limit screen time: Set a time limit for your children to watch and encourage their transition from watching to doing.
Follow what they’re watching: Just check out the Watch It Again page and you’ll always know what they’ve watched and what new interests they’re exploring.
Blocking: Don’t like a video? Block the video or the entire channel and never watch it again.
Marking: You can always alert us to inappropriate content by flagging a video for review. Flagged videos are reviewed 24/7.
Create individual experiences as unique as your children
Create up to eight child profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings. Choose “Approved Content Only” mode or select an age category that suits your child, “Preschool”, “Younger” or “Older”.
Select the “Approved Content Only” mode if you want to manually select the videos, channels and / or collections that you have approved for your child to watch. In this mode, children will not be able to search for videos. The “Preschool” mode designed for children aged 4 and under organizes videos that promote creativity, play, learning and exploration. Younger Mode allows children ages 5-7 to explore their interests in a wide variety of topics, including songs, cartoons, and crafts. While our ‘Older’ mode gives kids ages 8 and up the ability to search and explore additional content such as popular music and kids’ game videos.
All kinds of videos for all kinds of kids
Our library is filled with family-friendly videos on all different topics, stimulating inner creativity and playfulness in your children. It’s everything from their favorite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or how to make slime ;-), and everything in between.
