Nationwide Resources for Families:

PBS KIDS Broadcast

Stations throughout the country run a PBS KIDS 24/7 channel filled with trusted educational content that is available for free, over the air to all families.

PBS is sending a daily email to families with resources for how to engage the nation’s youngest learners. Just yesterday, the American Pediatric Academy listed PBS as a valuable resource for families during these challenging times. PBS was the only media company mentioned in the article. 

Available on mobile, tablet and connected TV devices, PBS KIDS offers on-demand educational videos and a live stream of the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel. No subscription is required.

Includes nearly 200 educational games, which can be downloaded for offline play anytime, anywhere. Learn more about this and PBS KIDS’ other apps at
