What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Daily Vroom is a free app for parents and other caregivers of young kids (ages toddler to 5) that suggests everyday learning activities and tips appropriate for each kid's age. The fun activities are organized by topic, situation, or time of day, or adults can schedule a random daily tip to be delivered at the same time each chosen day. Each tip includes a "see what your child is learning" explanation about the science-backed intellectual, social, or emotional skills that can be developed through the activity. Parents can keep an in-app journal with photos to document their child's progress. Multiple kids of different ages can be included on one adult's account, and parents can read tips in English or Spanish. Read the app's privacy policy to find out about the types of information collected and shared.

Great app for helping parents turn everyday moments into brain building fun!

What's it about?

To use DAILY VROOM, first tap "Try a tip" before you create an account, and then enter your child's birthday, name, and gender. Tap "Get started" and read your first activity tip. Then tap "See what your child is learning" to read what skills and concepts can be learned through the tip. If you choose to do the tip, tap "We did it!" and get a prompt to take a photo so that you can "make a scrapbook of all your brain building moments." Share or mark the tip as a favorite. To save your kid's activities, photos, and favorites, create an account by adding an email or using Facebook or Google. Search tips in 20+ categories (with subcategories in each) based on location, time of day, or "anytime, anywhere" tips; view the activity log; set a daily time to receive a tip reminder; return to favorite tips; and review what your child has done via the in-app journal.

Is it any good?

Busy days can make it difficult for parents to think of ways to make brushing teeth or sorting socks fun and educational for their kids, and this app solves this problem. Parents and caregivers can use Daily Vroom to help kids learn in everyday situations, such as sorting laundry, grocery shopping, playing outside, or talking in the car. By tapping into kids' natural drive to explore and learn about their everyday world, this app's tips engage kids on a deeper learning level and encourage more fun, meaningful adult-child interactions. The science-backed ideas are organized by common family routines or typically hectic, challenging times of day to re-frame these moments as opportunities to learn and connect with your child, rather than chores to get through. Daily Vroom's automatic daily reminders give parents a tip at a self-chosen time each day. The optional photo journal, "We did it!" moment of celebration, and streak records can motivate both parents and kids to work as a team to make learning part of more moments, every day. As long as parents use as directed and don't get lost in their phones along the way, this app can be a great tool.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how activities like those found on Daily Vroom prove that learning isn't limited to the classroom. Kids can learn something new anytime, anywhere, especially with the guidance of engaged parents and caregivers.

  • Daily Vroom includes many great tips to prepare young kids to read, but don't expect them to read until they're ready. As preschoolers, most kids are building prereading skills; they aren't yet at the reading stage of development. Read Common Sense Media's How can I help my preschooler build literacy skills?

  • Encourage kids to take photos of things they're interested in during the activities so that they can take part in creating the journal.
