At Kids' CBC, safety comes first. The Family Sandbox is a secure, social environment designed for children and their parents/guardians. The Parent-account holder manages all of the child profiles, and can edit and delete profiles at any time.
Currently, only parents can connect with their child, but we plan to add an additional feature that allows parents to invite extended family to be part of their child's contacts.
Parents are the account managers of their children's profiles. This feature allows them to drive their child's online experience on kidsbc.ca.
Children can create their own Kids' CBC nickname and secret password, which they can print out or save to their computer. If they forget, parents can log into their Family Sandbox account and help them create a new password!
Parents can add events and holidays to their child's first digital calendar. For those extra-exciting events, like a child's birthday, parents can set a 10-day countdown. Children will be able to see this calendar when they are logged in.
Parents and children can make their very own avatars! Children will be able to see their avatar on their customized homepage when they log in to kidscbc.ca, and parents can see the whole family when they're logged into their own Sandbox account.
Parents and children can type and draw fun, colourful messages, and then send them to each other.
A new message feature will be added soon! Parents can send special videos to their kids - starring Kids' CBC's very own Patty and Mamma Yamma!
