Impact That Goes Beyond ABC and 123
For more than four decades, children and caregivers have counted on Sesame Street for their ABCs, 123s, and other academic skills, such as vocabulary, math, and science. American children who frequently view Sesame Street as pre-schoolers achieve high school grade point averages that are almost 16% higher than those who don’t grow up watching the show. Not only are average grades better, but grades are also better in each of the core areas of English, math, and science.
Over and over again, research shows that Sesame Street can and does make a difference in preparing children for academic success. Read more about Sesame Street’s impact on literacy and numeracy here.
Along with Sesame Street, the Community Idea Stations remain dedicated to offering a strong line-up of children’s educational programming that teach and inspire young growing minds. Over the years, parents and caregivers have come to trust and rely on fun and engaging educational programs such as Sid the Science Kid, Dinosaur Train, Curious George, Cyberchase, Wild Kratts, Super WHY!, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!, WordGirl, and more.
