Re: Kids Software
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,
