Hi Mathias, I've read the terms of your proposal and they seem very reasonable to me.

I think it would be a good idea to have Wikikids as a sister project. There really exist paper enciclopedies for children and they are so different than the geeneral ones. It would really be a good resource for schools (as a 

In catalan, we have eduwiki available: http://www.eduwiki.cat which could be a good source for the future catalan wikikids.

Good luck with your project!

We've been refining some points of the Wikikids <http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikikids> proposal for a new Wikimedia Foundation Sister Project<http://fr.vikidia.org>.
We have fixed and added some points on Wikikids/For children or by children ? <http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikikids/For_children_or_by_children_%3F> and Wikikids/Questions and answers <http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikikids/Questions_and_answers>

Current step must be to work on the Wikikids#Project plan and potential schedule for the proposal <http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikikids#Project_plan_and_potential_schedule_for_the_proposal>, and within it, establishing the basic principles and rules for the wikis to open or adopt, and set up a requests for comment.

Beside the "knowledge resource" benefit of such a project, it would certainly also expand the opportunities for the wiki education programs. I mean it can enable to reach younger pupils, that will learn not only from the content of such a Wikikids and about its functioning, but by the way about the functioning of a resource they will use extensively few years later: Wikipedia :-) .

Indeed, this proposal critically needs your remarks, questions, criticisms, support (#People interested) and help/involvement if you think it deserves it!
