Read Time: 5 min

WordPress is a popular CMS platform, so you can easily find all kinds of free and paid themes for your website. In this post, my focus will be on free themes available for WordPress kids’ websites.

Themes are the central component of any WordPress website. They play a very important role in determining the functionality and appearance of a website. A fresh WordPress installation does come with a few default themes installed. However, the right theme for you will depend on the type of website that you want to create.

It is obvious that the needs of a photography website are entirely different from a news website or an eCommerce store. Therefore, it is important for you to install the right theme on your website.

Kids’ Education Themes

Kids usually don’t like studying. Therefore, creating a theme which caters to the education of young children requires the developers to create a colorful and engaging design. The fonts have to be playful, the colors have to be bright, and you should ideally also have images of kids having fun all over the website.

Here are some free themes in the WordPress plugin directory that meet these criteria. They are all responsive and will look great on devices with different screen sizes.

Kids School

The Kids School theme is ideal for anyone who is looking for a color and cheerful theme centered around education.
