Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood


“As a preschooler in the late 70’s, Mr. Rogers was iconic to me and my generation. He instilled the idea of being kind, mindful, empathetic, thoughtful, and loving yourself. These same principles live on in the Emmy-winning Daniel Tigers’ Neighborhood which I was joyfully able to share with my own daughter. Daniel and his 4-year-old friends sing helpful songs to reinforce themes like respect, imagination, and social skills. I promise your children will never forget them, nor will you!  Check out some new adventures for Daniel and his friends this back-to-school season. ”

NEW Mister Chris and Friends videos

The latest videos from our popular Mister Chris and Friends series, are digital shorts that guide children and their families through special daily moments: waking up, brushing teeth, washing hands, cleaning up, and going to bed. This video shorts series welcomes Elephant, a new friend who joins Mister Chris for these activities. Each video has a new original song and features a peek into lives and routines in our community thanks to participation from viewers. 

“Routine helps children process what they feel, see, touch and hear each day. Our hope is that these videos help little ones engage with five special everyday moments in a time when many of their routines have been disrupted,” said Chris Dorman. “And we hope our new friend, Elephant, helps families smile, giggle, and maybe even shed a joyful tear or two together.” 

These videos are available to watch below, and at vermontpbs.org/misterchris, where families can also watch full episodes of seasons one and two!
