Early Learning Technology Solutions
Kid Orange Tech provides kid-friendly, 100% educational technology solutions to support classrooms and parents. As technology plays an increasing role in children's everyday lives, it is important to ensure their experiences are safe and that their screen time has an educational purpose. In the rapidly changing and ever expanding world of available technology resources, this can pose a challenge to educators and parents as they strive to find age-appropriate content and interactive hardware for early learners.
The most powerful use of technology for children is when it is used to connect educators and parents to easily communicate learning goals so that a parent can reinforce what is being taught in school.

It doesn’t take much, as simple as a misplaced finger or a momentary lapse in judgment. It can be caused by someone else’s careless mistake, or even a mistake of your own. Door related injuries happen in a matter of seconds and safety is often neglected until an accident occurs. Stay safe with FingerguardUSA.
