Children's Programming Changes
Written by Holly on Monday September 3, 2012
It’s that time of year again. Time for changes to be made to the children’s programming lineup. Each year, we get some new programs, we lose some programs and we change some programs' time periods.
I’m a mom of two and I know how hard it is for the little ones when Sid or Barney isn’t on TV when they expect them to be. We take great care in keeping the schedule as consistent, nap-friendly and school-age-friendly as possible, but not everyone’s personal schedule works perfectly with our programming schedule. We hope this one will suit most of our viewers.
The OETA Kids Channel will see the most changes. There will also be a few on the weekends on OKLA. But since most people are concerned with the changes to the main OETA channel, here is the new lineup.
OETA HD (Main) -- Starting Monday, September 3rd
7am CURIOUS GEORGE – No change
7:30am THE CAT IN THE HAT – No change
8am SUPER WHY! – No change
8:30am DINOSAUR TRAIN – No change
9am SESAME STREET – No change
10am DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD -- *NEW* Children’s animated series that recreates the Neighborhood of Make Believe from MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD , featuring Daniel Striped Tiger, O the Owl, Prince Wednesday, Katerina Kittycat and Miss Elaina. The series curriculum is school-readiness and social-emotional learning, and each preschool themed episode offers a musical strategy for children and parents to use together. I’ve seen clips. It’s just wonderful!!
10:30am SID THE SCIENCE KID – Moved from 10am (On Monday, Sept 3rd, we will be showing a second episode of DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD, just to help introduce the characters. Starting Tuesday, Sept 4th, SID THE SCIENCE KID will appear in this time period Monday through Friday.)
