What is Gcompris?

GCompris is a software suite comprising educational entertainment software for children aged 2 to 10. GCompris was originally written in C and Python using the GTK+ widget toolkit, but a rewrite in C++ and QML using the Qt widget toolkit has been undertaken since early 2014.


  • Teachers report that it is extremely easy for them to implement GCompris in their curriculum since children find it intuitive and fun to use.
  • The program is also an excellent resource for mentally challenged children and adults.
  • GCompris has become an important resource to speed up the child’s learning process in the context of developing countries like India, where the only chance for a child of getting accustomed with computers is during school time.
