PBS Kids


PBS KIDS believes the world is full of possibilities, and so is every child. As the number one educational media brand for kids, PBS KIDS helps children 2-8 learn lessons that last a lifetime.

Through television, digital media, and community-based programs, PBS KIDS wants children to see themselves reflected and celebrated in lovable, diverse characters who are positive role models, and to explore their feelings and discover new adventures along the way. 

PBS KIDS content is focused on engaging educational experiences for children and leads with great characters and stories, a smart-funny sense of humor, and memorable imagery that captures children's natural curiosity and their excitement for exploring.

PBS KIDS has a rigorous, research-based way of developing content that supports the whole child, preparing them for success in school and life.
