Spring 2017 Mobile Apps

Developer: PBS Kids
Platform: iPad

PBS Kids Video is a video streaming app for children aged five years and younger. Children can watch the live PBS Kids channel or select from a wide variety of video clips and full length episodes featuring PBS Kids favorites such as Clifford, Curious George, Arthur, Daniel Tiger, Super Why, Sesame Street and more! Navigating the app is simple, straightforward, and requires no reading. So, children can gain a sense of self-efficacy and confidence.

In a world where older kids are constantly on Netflix, Hulu, and similar streaming apps, it is nice to have a preschool-friendly alternative. With PBS Kids Video, parents can allow their children to use the app independently while trusting that the materials their children are exposed to are not only safe, but wholesome and educational. They can learn about letters and letter sounds with Super Why, explore science with Syd the Science Kid, or learn about their feelings with Daniel Tiger.
