    The Participatory Design (PD) approach cannot be applied to developing software applications for small children (3–5/6 years) without considering the main constraint brought by their age: they cannot be involved in every step of the design. This paper presents our approach in adapting PD for preschoolers in the context of developing educational software that can be used as support for the teaching activities in Romanian kindergartens. We describe and discuss the results of evaluating the obtained software products with preschoolers and their teachers.
