Ages 4-8 yearsBased on the children’s books by Marc Brown, Arthur chronicles the adventures of Arthur (an eight-year-old aardvark) through stories that explore issues faced by real kids. It is a comedy that tells these stories from a kid’s point of view without moralizing or talking down. Situations on Arthur develop in realistic ways, and don’t always turn out as viewers—or Arthur and his friends—might expect.
|Peg + Cat
Peg + Cat is an animated math-based series. The show follows adorable, spirited Peg and her sidekick Cat as they embark on adventures, solve problems together, and learn foundational math concepts and skills. In each 12 minute episode, Peg and Cat face “A REALLY BIG PROBLEM,” and a messy, funny crisis that they must somehow solve without totally freaking out!
|Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood
Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is an animated program that builds on the pioneering PBS series Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. This series tells its engaging stories about the life of a preschooler using musical strategies grounded in Fred Rogers’ landmark social-emotional curriculum.

|Clifford the Big Red Dog
Clifford uses classic storytelling to help young children navigate a community that is continually changing and expanding. Each half-hour television episode follows Clifford and his pals as they interact with each other and the inhabitants of Birdwell Island. The stories are fun, gentle, and kid-relatable, dealing with issues that all kids experience whether it’s bragging, sharing, or learning to tell the truth. More importantly, they learn that’s it’s fun to discover the world with gusto.
Young viewers can identify with the Wild Kratts culturally diverse role models: smart, fun, confident, enthusiastic animal characters. Science content is seamlessly integrated with the stories to help children learn about the world and science as the animal characters apply their new knowledge to complete the mission – whether it be exploring the never-before-seen deep sea, or finding out why worms come out of the ground when it rains.
Nature Cat follows Fred, a house cat who dreams of exploring the great outdoors. In each episode, once his family leaves for the day, Fred transforms into Nature Cat, “backyard explorer extraordinaire.” Nature Cat can’t wait to get outside, but there’s one problem: he’s a house cat with no instincts for nature. Like many of today’s kids, Nature Cat is enthusiastic about outdoor activities, but is sometimes intimidated by them. With the help of his animal friends, Nature Cat embarks on exciting missions full of nature investigation, inspiring children to go outside and “play the show.”
Since 1969, children and adults alike have flocked to the place where multiethnic,
multigenerational, and even multispecies residents coexist in harmony. The people on this very special street learn life’s lessons together, provide viewers with strong role models, and teach children that everyone brings a special ability to the community. Here, children learn to use their imaginations, build social skills, and respect people’s differences. Giving kids honest answers to tough questions has made Sesame Street one of the most popular children’s television programs in the world.
|Sid the Science Kid
Sid the Science Kid is an animated television series using comedy to promote the fun of scientific exploration to preschoolers. The series combines a practical science curriculum, with music and humor to ignite children’s natural curiosity about science in everyday life. The inquisitive Sid starts each episode with a new question (“Why do bananas get mushy?”) and embarks on a fun-filled day of finding answers with the help of family and friends. Sid makes the link between kids’ instinctive curiosity and scientific exploration, and preschoolers’ questions often involve the same big ideas that scientists investigate.
|Ready Jet Go!
Curiosity about space starts as soon as kids are old enough to look up at the night sky and begin to wonder: what’s up there? Who better to ask about space than someone who’s actually been there – an alien boy named Jet Propulsion. Kids learn alongside a seasoned space traveler. READY JET GO! is a kid’s first introduction to space, earth science, and technology, presented in an entertaining and engaging way that will inspire a life-long interest. As an alien from Borton 7, Jet sees our Planet Earth like we want our kids to see it: with a sense of curiosity and wonder.
