Sesame Workshop

We are educators. Creators. Researchers. Moms. Dads. Caregivers. Friends. We are a community of 400+ people (plus some amazing partners!) who are passionate about one thing: helping children. We’re present in more than 150 countries, providing almost two hundred million children with access to life-changing early education, critical health lessons, and helpful tools for tough situations. And joy. Lots of joy.

We reach children in their earliest years, when we know we can have the biggest impact. Before age five, a child’s brain grows faster than at any other time, laying the foundation for all the learning, behavior, and physical and mental health to follow. And Sesame is there, helping those young children grow to reach their full potential.
