Sesame Workshop is the non-profit educational organization behind Sesame Street, the landmark television programme that reaches millions of children every day. Established in 1969 in the United States of America, Sesame Workshop’s work today extends across over 150 countries, making it the world’s largest preschool educator. The Workshop’s mission is to use the educational power of media to help children everywhere reach their highest potential. Delivered through a variety of platforms, Sesame Workshop develops research-based content – including television programmes, books, games, mobile apps and community engagement initiatives – that supports early childhood learning, helps prepare children for school, and addresses developmental needs. The Workshop’s programmes are tailored to the needs of specific regions and focus on topics that help young children and families develop critical skills for lifelong learning. Sesame Workshop made its foray in India in 2006 with the educational television show, Galli Galli Sim Sim, which has reached over 80 million children till date. This expertise of Sesame Street is now being brought to the Indian preschool space by Sesame Schoolhouse, through Sesame Street Preschools. Our preschool and after school programmes, brings together the best of Sesame Street and Galli Galli Sim Sim’s content to provide a holistic learning experience to children, helping them become global citizens. Our mission is to use the educational power of media to help children everywhere reach their highest potential.
