Just adding my .02 ... 

My children (I use LTSP at home) use their first name for the username,
and their middle name for their password.  They have all been doing it
since each was 3 (oldest now 8, youngest - and biggest name btw - is now
4)

It is true, I might not do that with a school, since not all kids have a
middle name, but the same idea could work.  Maybe kids name for
username,
and a parent's name for password.

A pre-school I visited had kids using their STUDENT ID # as the
username, and their own name as the password.  To help the kids remember
the stuff, the teachers wrote the info on Popsicle sticks.  Then the
process was very similar to the one about the laminated cards.
