Screen time can be a lifesaver for bilingual parents, but finding high-quality programming can be a challenge- especially for kids 0-7. PBS Kids Spanish is the perfect solution, and this post will tell you how to access it easily.
Why We Love PBS Kids Spanish
I love to use television in Spanish as a transition between English and Spanish time at home. We have a Google Chromecast plugged into the television closest to the kitchen, and during kitchen clean-up, I’ll often let the girls pick an episode of something to watch before we transition to storytime and bath time.
I’m pretty picky about what they watch, and I really want them to watch as much programming in Spanish as possible. We do watch a lot of Disney+ in Spanish and also there are a lot of high-quality Spanish shows on Netflix and Apple+. We also do TruFluency Spanish classes each week to keep them immersed with a good teacher and great curriculum.
But I just adore PBS Kids’ programming. It is the one channel that I feel 100% comfortable letting my kids watch unsupervised- and sometimes for longer than I originally said they could.
I feel like children learn so much from the shows- from how to treat each other kindly to concrete science and math concepts that are perfect for their ages. Even I get hooked on some of the shows! We are huge fans of Wild Kratts, Molly of Denali, Pinkalicous, Xavier Riddle, and Let’s Go Luna.
I love that with PBS Kids shows, there are no commercials, and the episodes only last between 22 and 25 minutes. And the shows are great for children ages 0-7, I’d say.
PBS Kids Spanish Shows
The shows offered on PBS Kids Spanish are the following:
- Berenstain Bears
- Peg + Cat
- Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood
- Dinosaur Train
How To Access PBS Kids Spanish Shows
You can subscribe to PBS Kids Spanish via Amazon.
What you will do is go to this page and subscribe to the PBS Kids channel on Amazon. You’ll get a 7 day free trial for the channel, and then you will pay an additional fee of $4.99 per month. The proceeds go to support public television nationwide, which I love.
We have kept the channel for quite a while because the girls like to watch their favorite shows over and over. If you kids have a KindleFire kids tablet then they can watch PBS Kids Spanish on their own devices too.
What we do is have a Google Chromecast or AppleTV stick on the tv and I just transfer the shows over from the app on my phone to the TV to make it super easy for me.
If you are looking for games in Spanish for your kids, I can highly recommend the PBS Kids Games app. You can find free online games in Spanish here.
