  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.
