About Us

Brought to you by USA.gov, Kids.gov is the official kids' portal for the U.S. government. We link kids, parents and teachers to information and services on the web from government agencies, schools, and educational organizations, all geared to the learning level and interest of kids.

Kids.gov is organized into four audiences: Kids (Grades K-5), Teens (Grades 6-8), Teachers and Parents. Each audience tab is divided into educational subjects like Arts, Math, and History.

Our Mission

To provide a safe place to learn and play.

Are Federal Agency Websites Required to Post Kids' Pages?

In 1997, President Bill Clinton issued a memo on Expanding Access to Internet-Based Educational Resources for Children, Teachers, and Parents. The memo directed federal agencies to develop and share online educational resources for students, teachers, and parents. Creating an agency kids' page would be one way to fulfill this requirement, and could be considered a best practice, but there are other ways to present resources for young audiences—like a portal for teachers and parents.

In response to the memo, the Department of Education chaired an interagency working group for education.
