There is parental control with PIN to create multiple users and set the restrictions. Do it using the free Google Family Link app from the Android app store. Apples based phone do not have multiple user support but still has the restrictions using passcode. The link has more information.

 Also there is the Security section which you can check to make sure the Unknown sources switch is turned off (which it probably will be).

There are useful apps. You may want to look at qustodio that keeps track of your children's online activity. The Free version of Qustodio can protect a single device and includes basic protection features. You can try it out first. The Premium version can protect multiple family devices, and most important, gives you access to Premium features such as Location Tracking, Calls and Text Messages Tracking and Applications Controls.
