About the Kids and Teens Open Directory Project
As the web grows, automated search engines and directories with small editorial staffs will be unable to cope with the volume of sites.  The Kids and Teens Open Directory Project's goal is to produce the most comprehensive directory of the web for people under the age of 18, by relying on a vast army of volunteer editors.

The KidzSearch homepage is your signal that safe internet results will be returned. Further, all our search result pages have a green stripe at the top as your signal that the results are filtered. This allows parents and educators to more easily monitor things. We suggest always using this tool under adult supervision.
KidzSearch provides an easy free solution for safe internet usage when kids use their computer from any location, since parents can be given instructions on which search engine they should be using for their studies.
