PBS Children's Media

PBS KIDS is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of children through curriculum-based media, using new and traditional platforms to support children in their acquisition of knowledge and critical thinking skills while empowering their imagination and curiosity of the world.

Providing the highest-quality programming and learning environment for children, PBS’ children’s media invites kids on a journey to explore the world around them with non-violent, age-appropriate content that offers positive role models for children to learn from and grow with.

In 2013, PBS KIDS series received eight Daytime Emmy Awards, as well as a combined 13 Parents' Choice Awards across television, mobile app and small screen categories. PBS KIDS also received six Kidscreen Awards, including being named Best Channel Website, and PBSKIDS.org was also honored with a Webby Award and a Webby People's Voice Award for Best Youth Website.

According to Nielsen, in December 2013, PBS had four of the top 10 programs among mothers of young children, including CURIOUS GEORGE, DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD, PEG + CAT and SESAME STREET.

More than one-third (40%) of all time spent watching kids videos online is on PBSKIDS.org (comScore Video Metrix, 12/2013). In addition, more than 255 million streams were delivered via the PBS KIDS Video for iPhone/iPad app in December (Google Analytics).
