PBS Kids is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of children through curriculum-based entertainment with positive role models and content designed to nurture a child’s total well-being. With a 360-degree approach towards learning and reaching children, PBS Kids leverages the full spectrum of media and technology to build knowledge, critical thinking, imagination and curiosity. PBS Kids encourages children to interact as respectful citizens in a diverse society. By involving parents, teachers, caregivers and communities as learning partners, PBS Kids helps to empower children for success in school and in life. PBS’ bottom line is measured by how much it contributes to the welfare of America’s children.

PBS Kids programming is featured daily on our primary channel, Nine PBS, available on channel 9.1 and through other local TV providers. 

We also offer Nine PBS KIDS, a 24 hour-a-day station just for kids! Tune in over-the-air on channel 9.2 and Charter Digital Cable channel 183 in St. Louis, and on our 24/7 live stream.
