Playhouse Disney has now become Disney Junior. Launched on May 6, Disney Junior takes some classic favorites and adds in some new shows that will engage your little ones and take them on different adventures.
Disney Junior is continuing its mandate to provide educational and development-based entertainment for children across the country. Disney Junior remains a commercial free channel that is available in both French and English to subscribers across the country.
With the changes and the introduction of new programs, we are also saying goodbye to some old programs, some of which were family favorites to our little angels. It is hard to move on from programming that your loved ones were very particular to. Every show brings something unique to the table and offers new learning opportunities for us viewers.
Our favorite new show in the Disney Junior family is Jake and the Never Land Pirates. Jake’s crew includes kid pirates Izzy, Cubby and your child. At the beginning of the show, Jake invites the viewers to join his crew and help them as they embark on their new adventure. Captain Hook and his comedic crew are always meddling with the kid pirates by taking items belonging to them and it is up to Jake and his team to work together to get the items back. Along the way, they solve problems and overcome obstacles and in turn receive gold doubloons.
Make sure you are up to date with these new changes by liking Disney Junior on Facebook, or stop by the new Disney Junior website to check out their new programs. There are also a lot of fun games and extra activities that you can do together with your kids.
