Educational TV Programmes for Children in Nigeria

Back in the day, we used to have a lot of educational TV programmes for children. These days, more often than not, a gathering of children before a television set means a carton centric channel is on. Most of them, on close inspection, would be a better fit for dummies and the not so mentally astute. There still are educational programs for children on the air, they just don’t make it to kid themed television.

There are cartoons like ed. Edd and eddy which are reminiscent of the movie dumb and dumber. There are others like Ben 10 which entertain but don’t teach much. I grew up watching much better television.

Our Top 10 list is made up of educational cartoons and stations that don’t just entertain but teach the children.

Channel 319 DSTV

This tops the list because what you get on that channel is 24/7 education. There are programs for all ages from 3 to 16.

Barney and Friends

This is a great way to pass across a message, educate, and involve your child in sing along sessions at the same time. Very entertaining, quite educative, all around fun.

Beauty and the Beast

There is no better cartoon (now movie) to teach a child not to judge a book by its cover. It passes along the short comings of shallowness quite nicely. This is especially good for ladies, but also a masterclass in social education for young boys.

Jiminy Cricket

This is one most parents nowadays might not know. It’s a cartoon from way back. I’m talking 1950s and 60s. For those parents who would rather have an artistic child, Jiminy Cricket is the way to go. This cartoon lays the foundation for artistry in any child it comes across.

Curious George

This is more for the younger kids as it contains basic lessons like learning shapes, numbers, and colors. It soothes the parent too.

Sid The Science Kid

Another one for science centric kids. It teaches the kids about a lot of cool science facts and has a section for jokes too.

Frozen

This is one that deals with anger and its consequences and sibling rivalry. It helps kids realize there’s more to life than themselves and their needs.

Doc McStuffins

This is for those parents who want to breed doctors and vets. Doc McStuffins is basically a veterinary doctor. It’s the best way to introduce your prospective doctor to medicine as early as possible.
