Welcome to Tot School Tuesdays… soon to be Teach Me Tuesdays! Tot School Tuesdays is growing! Rather than just honing in on activities and idea for tots, we are doing to focus on all things kid-friendly and educational. Teach Me Tuesdays seems to encompass that, so I hope you are all love the name change.
Today I am sharing the Top 10 Educational Shows on Netflix for your kiddos. Generally, there’s not a whole lot of TV watching in our house. We don’t have cable or satellite TV… we watch movies and Netflix if the TV is on. We find this more affordable for our family and honestly, we’re busy doing other things so it’s just not necessary. There are times, however, that our daughter watches TV. Typically a show in the morning while she is eating breakfast and a show during lunch and/or rest time. Saturdays are a little more “lax” on TV privileges as well. I LOVE the selection of educational series and shows that Netflix offers and they are our go-to shows that we allow our 5 year old to watch.

Do your kiddos watch any of these shows? I highly recommend them! My daughter learned her letter sounds from Leap Frog after watching the show 2 times… the songs are so cute and catchy and really make learning fun! Many of these shows have free educational games online too…just Google search the title of the show!
