WGCU PBS Kids Channel 24/7
PBS stations reach more kids aged 2-5, more moms with children under 6 years old and more children from low-income families than any other kids TV network.
With its new 24/7 channel and digital offerings, WGCU will build on this reach and impact.
WGCU will extend its commitment to early learning by offering more families high-quality PBS KIDS content that is trusted by parents and proven to help kids learn. In a recent survey, PBS KIDS led all networks in improving kids’ behavior, with 74% of parents saying their child exhibits more positive behavior after engaging with PBS KIDS. And years of research confirm that PBS KIDS media content helps children build critical skills that enable them to find success in school and life, while also helping parents increase their own engagement.
A recent study conducted by WestEd found that PBS KIDS resources can help narrow the math achievement gap for children from low-income families and better prepare them for kindergarten. Additionally, parents’ awareness of their children’s math learning increased significantly – as did their use of strategies to support their children’s learning. Designed to meet the needs of today’s kids, WGCU’s new, free 24/7 services will provide learning opportunities for children whenever and wherever they access media.
Nielsen data demonstrate that live TV is the dominant way children access video, accounting for 67% of the time children spend watching video content.Most kids’ TV viewing takes place on weeknights and weekend afternoons and evenings. This trend is true for all children, but especially for those in low-income families.
