Launching in fall 2012, the series tells engaging stories about the life of a preschooler and is accompanied by cross-platform games and activities for the very youngest children, together with online resources for parents and teachers. Daniel was developed by The Fred Rogers Company, and brings together a group of today’s leading creators of children’s media and educational technology. The series tells its engaging stories using musical strategies grounded in Fred Rogers’ landmark curriculum: its songs give parents and children a concrete way to practice important school-readiness skills together.
