PBS KIDS Puts Education First

With kids consuming content on an ever-increasing number of platforms, (linear television, digital streaming platforms, and connected television–CTV), it can be difficult for parents to navigate and control this crowded media landscape. So, how can parents be sure the content their kids are consuming is safe, educational, and high-quality? 

It starts with parents choosing a content creator that puts education first. Children need to develop a variety of cognitive and social-emotional skills to be successful life-long learners. PBS KIDS prioritizes education by identifying educational goals for each show and digital experience and then working with award-winning producers to create entertaining and engaging content that fulfills these goals. These key areas range from social-emotional learning and critical thinking skills to literacy and STEM. Each PBS KIDS series helps to fulfill PBS’s mission to use the power of media to ensure every child can reach their full potential in school and in life. 

Parents trust PBS KIDS to be educational and safe
Third-party research confirms that PBS KIDS makes a difference in helping children learn the skills they need to succeed, and generations of parents agree. Eighty-four percent of parents say PBS KIDS best prepares children for success in school, and 82% of parents agree that PBS KIDS is a safe and trusted source for kids to watch television and play digital games and apps.

New Rosie’s Rules teaches through storytelling

An example of this “education first” programming is the new series Rosie’s Rules on PBS KIDS. With an educational focus on introducing preschoolers to social studies, the stories in Rosie’s Rules help kids develop a deeper understanding of themselves, their families, and their communities. Rosie’s Rules follows Rosie Fuentes, an inquisitive and hilarious 5-year-old from a blended, multicultural family, as she explores the amazing world around her. The series incorporates bilingual characters, Mexican culture, and original schoolhouse rock-type songs to enhance kids’ self-identity through history and culture.
