Home screen age level

When you first open the YouTube Kids app, you'll be asked what age level of videos your child enjoys.

  • Nursery-school age
  • School age
  • All kids

After you make a selection, the YouTube Kids initial home screen will show videos that interest children in that age range. Note that videos intended for younger or older children will still be available through search.

Once your child has watched a few videos, the app will begin recommending videos on the home screen based on the terms that they've searched for and videos that they've watched. These videos might be outside of the age range originally chosen.

You can update the age level settings of the YouTube Kids app at any time:

  1. In the bottom corner of any page in the app, tap the lock icon  .
  2. Read and enter the numbers that appear or enter your custom passcode.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Tap Home Screen Age Level or Content Age
