GCompris is a high quality educational software suite, including a large number of activities for children aged 2 to 10.

Some of the activities are game orientated, but nonetheless still educational.

Here is the list of activity categories with some examples:

    computer discovery: keyboard, mouse, touchscreen ...
    reading: letters, words, reading practice, typing text ...
    arithmetic: numbers, operations, table memory, enumeration, double entry table ...
    science: the canal lock, the water cycle, renewable energy ...
    geography: countries, regions, culture ...
    games: chess, memory, align 4, hangman, tic-tac-toe ...
    other: colors, shapes, Braille, learn to tell time ...

Currently GCompris offers more than 150 activities, and more are being developed. GCompris is free software, it means that you can adapt it to your own needs, improve it, and most importantly share it with children everywhere. But 7 years ago you had to BUY It!

GCompris Old Version 15.10 ... that you had to buy ... is also now FREE! They released a Code to Unlock their Old Version (for Windows XP Users) ... To enable all the activities in this old version, you can use the code 200202 in the entry box that contains the word CODE when you start the application

The GCompris project is hosted and developed by the KDE community.
