Google has launched a new badge dubbed as "Teacher-Approved" where the list of apps is of high-quality and child-friendly, now available on the Google Play Store. Today, we're making it easier for parents to find the good stuff, with a new Kids tab on Google Play filled with "Teacher-Approved" apps that are both enriching and entertaining," the Google blog post pointed.

For this purpose, Google has assembled a team of teachers led by Joe Blatt from Harvard Graduate School of Education and Dr. Sandra Calvert from Georgetown University. The group will be reviewing and rating apps for children and checking if they meet the required criteria.

"We include information in the app listing about why the app was rated highly to help parents determine if the app is right for their child," Google said. The required criteria include quality of experience, enrichment, age-appropriateness, and delight.

Once these apps for kids are approved, parents can see a "Teacher-Approved" badge in the description. Google is also including a paragraphic description in the app listing, explaining the rating and what the badge means.
