Children's Programming

MPT prides itself on being a safe harbor of children's educational programming. Numerous studies of public TV programming indicate that children who watch shows such as Sesame Street, Martha Speaks, SuperWHY! and Word World show marked improvement on key literacy and social skills. What's more, public TV is cited as the number one source of media content among preschool teachers.
