Opening Worlds of
Possibilities
for America’s Children
Putting Kids First
for More than 45 Years
When Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood hit the airwaves
more than four decades ago, PBS revolutionized television,
using it as it never had been used before, as a tool to reach
children with a simple message: you are special, you matter
and there is no one else in the world exactly like you. Mister
Rogers’ Neighborhood and PBS touched millions of lives with
that powerful message, which today remains a core part of
PBS KIDS’ DNA.
PBS KIDS has an unwavering vision of a world where all
children can reach their potential and is committed to using
the power of media to work towards that goal. PBS KIDS trusts all children, viewing
them as citizens, not consumers, and offering media that empowers them to be
curious, resilient and empathetic.
In addition to continuing the legacy of putting kids
first, PBS KIDS also continues to build on another part of
Fred Rogers’ legacy: reimagining the role of media and
seeking learning opportunities in every new technology.
PBS KIDS develops connected learning experiences
across platforms, online and offline, all designed to
light a spark, to inspire exploration and to help all kids
reach their potential, so that every child can discover
a world of unlimited possibilities.
The American public values PBS KIDS and confirms that it is delivering on its mission.
A recent poll found that PBS KIDS is the number-one educational media brand, helps
prepare children for success in school and helps all children reach their potential.
This report presents the results of a national survey conducted by ORC International’s DualFrame CARAVAN in January 2015.
The ORC International study included 1,010 adults, 18 years of age and older, who participated by phone January 9-18, 2015.
Results were weighted to be statistically representative of the adult U.S. population.

Nurturing the Whole Child
PBS KIDS develops media content that supports the whole child. PBS KIDS starts
with the needs of today’s children, then works with advisors and world-class
producers to develop content that meets those needs. Throughout the process,
PBS KIDS tests the content with kids to ensure that it is developmentally
appropriate and that it is achieving its learning goals.
