My Kindergartener loves this toon. It was done so well. I can hear and see the teachers in its creation. It is the best show for this age group. It holds their attention and teaches. Thanks so much for this quality show. I can go in the kitchen and know he is learning something positive in the next room. Season 2 please.

Keeps the attention of my 5 and 3 year old
Verified purchase
I really like this show! My son will be starting K and when I saw this I thought it may be good to ease the transition from homeschooling pre-K with me to actually going to a classroom.

I like that the kids in the show seem normal and not perfect. The main character is funny. She speaks a little bit like an adult - which is good as the show is not speaking down to the kids. It is interesting, focused and very cute.

Watching this with my children offers an opportunity to talk with my son about his upcoming K adventure. This helps me discuss topics like good behavior, manners, obeying the teacher, standing in line, bathroom etiquette, safety and so on.

The only drawback could be the graphics and music. The later are rather old fashioned and more basic than the more fashionable current animation one finds in Disney movies for example. This doesn't seem to be a problem for my kids. It is engaging enough.
