What videos are available in YouTube Kids

We’ve built YouTube Kids to be a family-friendly place for kids to explore their interests. We use a mix of algorithmic filtering, user input, and human review to figure out what videos should be available in YouTube Kids:

  • Videos on the homescreen go through an extra level of quality control via human review.
  • Our algorithm chooses the videos displayed in Search and Recommended.

Though our system has been rigorously tuned and tested, no algorithm is perfect, and even a perfect algorithm isn't the same as your judgment. It's possible that your child may find content in the app that you may not want your child to come across. If this happens, you can block or report the video. We take these reports seriously and use them to improve the app for everyone.

There are also various settings and controls available for you to customize your child’s experience:

When you turn off search, your child is limited to:

  • Videos from a set of channels verified by YouTube Kids, and
  • Any videos or channels you share with them from YouTube.
Note: Regardless of the settings for Search there’s a chance that your child will find content that you don't want them to watch.
