Which TV channel offers the most support for educational learning? Clue: It’s not CBBC

Home-schooling has become something of the norm given lockdown and there’s some TV channels out there that can help make things a little easier, thanks to their educational content.

As of early January, England has been plunged into its third national lockdown, with schools being ordered to close until further notice and reports revealing they could remain shut until after Easter.

The closures lead to BBC making the decision to air three hours worth of educational content each day while school children are forced to stay home.

However, there are a number of channels offering learning opportunities through educational programmes, with Nickelodeon Jr topping them all when it comes to the amount of such content available.

It lists a huge amount of children’s shows set to get kids thinking, including much-loved favourites Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol, Blue’s Clues and Dora, and to help support homeschooling.

In total, Nick Jr airs just over 8 hours of educational content per day.

Over on Freeview, nine-and-a-half hours worth of educational content is available across a number of channels, including CBeebies, CBBC and Channel 5.

To get all you parents out there clued up, CBeebies is a solid second when it comes to getting your kids watching and learning simultaneously.

With shows like Numberblocks, Something Special and Bedtime Stories, CBeebies produces four hours worth of educational content, with CBBC closely following with three hours and 38 minutes worth and Channel 5 airing just over an hour-and-a-half of educational programmes.

Channels that fall shorter when it comes to educational content are BBC Two, with just an hour’s worth, CITV, that only shares 11 minutes of onscreen learning, and Sony-owned channel Pop that recorded nothing at all.

The survey, carried out by, also looked into educational content available on streaming platforms, with children’s shows on Netflix revealed to be 24% more educational that Amazon Prime (18%) and Disney Plus (16%).
