Educational YouTube channels can be an amazing resource for kids and babies. My kids, 3 and 1, have learned SO much from watching educational YouTube channels. You can check out our favorites below.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO TEACH YOUR BABY OR TODDLER?
Babies and toddlers learn best from repetition. That’s why watching educational YouTube channels over and over again works so well!
Babies and toddlers learn best from bright and engaging photos and videos. In addition to utilizing free educational YouTube channels, I purchased several “First 100” board books for my kids. We all know just how important reading is for a child’s development!
These books are absolutely amazing, and it’s nice to take a break from watching YouTube. They are packed full of bright and engaging photos that kept my kids interested and learning for hours. They loved pointing to each item in the book and asking me what it was over and over again until they learned it. Then they would go through the books and tell me what each item was all by themselves!
Both of my kids had learned most of the items in these books by 18-20 months old! Friends, family, and even their pediatrician couldn’t believe how much they had learned at such an early age!

There are so many great educational YouTube channels for kids and babies, and I love to take advantage of them. Kids love to watch tv, so why not educate them at the same time? After watching youtube channels for several months, we have come up with a list of our favorites. The ones included in this list are full of upbeat music, bright and colorful graphics, and lots of educational facts.
There are a lot of youtube channels out there that are hard to understand, are not as attention grabbing, or not as educational as I would like them to be. We really had to weed through a lot of junk to find the ones that my kids like the most, and that I feel are a good fit for them.
Another factor in my decision is how annoying they are to me (ha!). If you’re going to sit and listen to the same videos over and over again all day, you have to make sure that they aren’t going to drive you completely crazy!
Here’s a list of the 5 Best Educational YouTube Channels for Kids and Babies that I came up with. These channels work great for us. They hold my kids’ attention for hours, I don’t find them to be too annoying, and they are very educational.
1. KidsTV123 – This is actually the first educational youtube channel that we started watching with Kayleigh. The songs are very catchy and the man that sings them has a very soothing voice. She absolutely loves this channel. Her favorite video from this channel is The Solar System song. Perhaps one day she will be an astronaut!
