Play School




The longest running children’s show in Australia, and the second longest running worldwide, Play School is nothing short of an institution. For over fifty years, generations of children have been introduced to the Play School world of imagination, creativity and learning through play.

With a strong core philosophy, Play School has evolved and grown, across the generations and with a changing society – ensuring that it remains a pre-school touchstone for the vast majority of Australian children.

Broadcast three times daily, Play School has new content in constant development. In addition, ongoing events and merchandising programs (encompassing books, music, toys and more) ensure that Play School is a trusted, loved household name.
