What is the project purpose? What will be its scope? How would it benefit to be part of Wikimedia?
Wikipedia is a great place to search for information but adult content makes it unsuitable for children. There are sites that offer this service but are limited in a few languages available. Therefore, the creation of this encyclopedia helps to spread the knowledge to young generations around the world

Will there be many language versions or just on one multilingual wiki?
How many languages?
Is the project going to be in one language or in many?
Proposed project website address The (proposed) website for the project
Proposed logo for the project The logo for the project, if you already have one
Technical requirements
If the project requires any new features that the MediaWiki software currently doesn't have, please describe in detail. Are additional MediaWiki extensions needed for the project?
Mediawiki with simple user interface, beautiful colored themes and large icons.
Development wiki Does your project have a technical-development wiki (e.g., in Wikimedia Labs)?

  1.   Support most of the existing kids wiki proposals are not perfectly dealt with. given that one of the proposals are closed and the other is proposed by a blocked user, i think that this has a determined proposer who would be able to make this work. As the proposer pointed out, a free kids encyclopedia is desperately needed, and many websites are too compact and bordered to serve such purpose. advertisements and payment offers are spread all around. Simple english wikipedia is just for english children, we could either incubate the SEW or we could approve this proposal. Either way, a childrens encyclopedia is needed.

  1.   Support I think this is a good idea that could actually work out ok in practise, like the Simple English Wikipedia. Rubbish computer (Talk: Contribs) 16:08, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
