The FUSE Early Childhood Resource
FUSE Early Childhood is a DEECD (Department of Education and Early Childhood Development) resource that presents a range of websites to help children read, learn, think, play and create online. It is designed to be used by young children with adult supervision and guidance. The environment is not 'closed', therefore if a child continues to click to other sites they are 'outside' of the FUSE environment. All feedback is welcome.
