I am knew to Edubuntu, could anyone point me in the right direction for some applications for children.
I know there are loads of applications out there I just don't know where to find them or what they do.
Mainly younger children, age range 4-6.
Thanks you alot.

A lot of the applications are in Applications->Education . However, for younger kids there is a cool app called gcompris. You can find it in Applications->Games->Educational suite gcompris .
If that's not enough or what you're looking for the edubuntu-users mailing list (more info on http://lists.ubuntu.com) should have more info.
Hope this helps,

I have set several boxes for a kindergarten that were running xubuntu plus some of the games in edubuntu
the most popular were :
(actually i think one or two of them didn't come with edubuntu , i added them later...can't remember)
since these computers run really low hardware ,xubuntu was too slow and i finally found a great version of puppy linux which is supper fast and contains some more games (sadly no childsplay though)
