SESAME STREET is funded in part by a Ready To Learn cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Education through PBS.
Sesame Street, the recipient of 85 Emmys, engages children with its unique blend of excitement, humor, and compassion. Sesame Street helps children learn and grow in a constantly changing, continually challenging environment.
The Sesame Street format now includes brand new segments, smoother transitions, and a deeper focus on school readiness. Daily segments include “Journey to Ernie,” a problem solving game of hide-and-seek, and the wildly popular “Elmo’s World.” Children can also expect a daily dose of Big Bird, Cookie Monster, and the Count.
For children 2 to 4 years old.

Sesame Street encourages children to:
- Take beginning steps toward reading, writing, mathematics and science.
- Appreciate cultural diversity by modeling people who differ in appearance, action, or point of view playing together, working together, making friends, and resolving conflicts.
- Appreciate the arts in a variety of forms including visual art, music, and dance and create their own art as they develop the concept, “I am an artist.”
- Learn about the body and how to keep it healthy and safe.
Helping Kids Prepare for School
Sesame Street is built around a comprehensive, whole child curriculum created by in-house child psychologists and educators. Every segment, every song, and every story is designed to educate young viewers about a specific lesson – and every year the curriculum focus changes to address the current educational needs of children.
