If you’re a parent with kids living through the current pandemic, you'll understand the value and importance of quality, educational TV shows. An incredible fact is that children are actively observing their world and learning from it from the moment of birth. Thanks to DStv's School of Laughter, kids and parents are in for a treat. We love sitting down with Gia and watching shows where she can be exposed to fascinating places and quality content that enriches and entertains.
We all understand this - It is late in the afternoon, and you are trying to make dinner, talk on a conference call and juggle your children. Searching for something to keep your child’s interest, you head over to the television to look for something safe, informative and engaging, but often find yourself spending 20 minutes just searching for something appropriate.
It's been over 2 years since the launch of DStv's School of Laughter and has been our go-to ever since. It provides safe, age-appropriate TV shows where education and entertainment go hand-in-hand.
From Cartoon Network on channel 301, Boomerang on 302, Cbeebies on 306 and so much more. We already have our favourites, so if you're looking for new shows to try out, take a look at some of our top picks.
