PBS KIDS PLAY! now features a streaming music service, free to all subscribers, to help reinforce curriculum lessons for students in preschool, kindergarten and first grade.

PBS KIDS PLAY, a cross-curricular adaptive learning program, features PBS KIDS characters and interactive games. The initial 25 music tracks come from the popular PBS KIDS program DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD and Web-original series FIZZY’S LUNCH LAB, with songs from more PBS KIDS series slated to join the line-up later this year.

The short, 60- to 90-second songs feature simple lyrics that are appropriate for students in preschool through first grade. The songs featured on PBS KIDS PLAY! are designed to aid memory recall, reinforce key developmental and language themes, and encourage body movement for healthy development. Initial themes address social-emotional skills and nutrition, with titles such as, “When You Feel So Mad That You Want to Roar,” “Calcium Yum Yum,” and “Hydration Nation.” More music tracks on other educational themes will be added on an ongoing basis.
