Application that can't be exited?

I'm trying to figure out a way to program an application that can't be exited out of without a password. I've created a really simple educational program for my kids, but don't want them to be able to leave the application and play other games on the iPad without my permission. Anyone know how to do this? My game was developed using Javascript/HTML5

I doubt you can do that within your program,
but with iOS 6 you should be able to set permission so the kids can only use that program on the iPad with their pin number.

Use Guided Access in iOS6 to prevent the closing of the app.
