Peg + Cat Season 2

Peg + Cat is a pre-school mathematics property that targets children ages 3-5 and uses television and transmedia to develop the inquiry skills and core knowledge that will prepare children for kindergarten and beyond. Season 2 of Peg + Cat includes 25 new episodes and new web and mobile content, and features a suite of content and community engagement materials focused on cross-age peer mentorship. The Fred Rogers Company works with an expert on mentorship to develop this suite of content and community engagement, in which Peg + Cat series characters model the best characteristics of peer-mentorship as they solve math problems together. In addition, the producer partners with WQED in Pittsburgh to develop a station toolkit to help stations engage their communities around Peg + Cat Season 2 and the mentorship suite. Peg + Cat Season 2 launched in April 2016. CPB previously funded Season 1 of Peg + Cat in support of Ready To Learn.
