The new PBS Kids series Hero Elementary will join the CPTV Kids lineup beginning June 1, 2020. Hero Elementary is a school for budding superheroes, where kids learn to master their innate powers, like flying and teleportation, while exploring science along the way.

Get a sneak peek at the series:

Hero Elementary aims to give children ages 4 to 7 the tools to solve problems by thinking and acting like scientists and igniting their natural curiosity and empathy. The stories in Hero Elementary center around a team of super students called Sparks’ Crew. Led by their quirky and enthusiastic teacher, Mr. Sparks, they work together to help people, solve problems, and try to make the world a better place.

When their imperfect powers aren’t up to the task, the students look to their other powers – the superpowers of science – to help them investigate, observe, make predictions, and figure out a solution!

This new multi-platform series will air on CPTV weekdays at 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., beginning with an hour-long premiere airing at 8 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. on June 1.

The series will also air on the CPTV PBS Kids 24/7 channel Saturdays and Sundays at 5 p.m. and Mondays-Thursdays at 8 p.m., as well as on PBS Kids digital platforms.
