From field trips, to building with LEGO bricks, and Show and Tell – most of us have fond memories from kindergarten.
As a preschool educational approach, it lays the groundwork for a child’s educational journey through various fun activities such as drawing, singing, and outdoor play. That’s why it’s important that the classroom and learning materials used are suitably designed for young minds.
When choosing fonts for kindergarteners, decorative and colorful are not always a priority. Instead, consider readability, consistency, and contrast. Pick fonts that are clear, legible, and age-appropriate that can be easily seen and read when placed on posters, books, and cards. Don’t forget to include dyslexia-friendly fonts (e.g., OpenDyslexic, Arial, Comic Sans, Lexia Readable, etc.) in your design toolkit.
Ready to spark curiosity, foster learning, and ignite creativity? Whether you’re a parent or an educator, you will love our selection of fun, practical kindergarten fonts!
