Standout software for young children (say 2-4)

I'm putting together a system for a local daycare.  Expected users are 2-4
years old.  Suggestions for software packages etc. appreciated in case I'm
missing something.   Tuxpaint and GCompris are the obvious ones.
Also already thought of
- Direct log in to non-admin account
- No internet connectivity
- I'm thinking no menus - just desktop icons...  Anybody know if that intro
  screen they use on the Asus EEE is a separate project somewhere?  Looks
- I'm also thinking of making both mouse buttons right click - that's an option
  in Tux Paint I always thought was smart...  if I could make it apply to that
  one account only it would be perfect.
- I could install WINE and an MS based software product if there's a real stand
  out for that age bracket I suppose.

Other suggestions?
