Watch With Your Kids

Welcome to the IdahoPTV Parents website! At Idaho Public Television, we know that parents are a child’s first and most important teachers. 

As a parent, you have the freedom to choose which programs you and your children watch together. When you watch PBS KIDS with your children, their learning is increased. We provide a wide range of free content and tools so you can customize your children’s learning, based on your goals and interests. Review program descriptions, and watch with your kids, using our discussion questions, learning goals, and games and activities to make learning fun.
