This paper presents the application of multimedia platforms as an alternative to improving child education in Nigeria. The enormous challenges experienced in the present day child education as a result of children’s natural vulnerability to distraction and loss of concentration in their educational pursuit have led to the research of this nature. An object oriented paradigm that initiates learning mode among children through the use of interactive animations that foster concentration has been proposed in this paper. A test run of the system demonstrated an efficient platform for improved child learning capacity with minimum distraction. The result of the research therefore is a domain independent-multimedia platform that addresses the prevalent Nigerian child education problem.
