New Delhi: There is a constant need for early childhood education in India, not just in preschools but also at home where parents are looking for stronger and more engaging learning tools.

With an aim to help children and caregivers at home--the popular kids’ programme 'Galli Galli Sim Sim' which is an Indian adaptation of the internationally acclaimed TV series- 'Sesame Street', is back on Doodarshan with more fun, laughter, and learning!

This season unveils several new facets along with celebrities like Sonam Kapoor, Kalki Koechlin, Kailash Kher and Rajat Kapoor for the first time on the show.

Speaking about the new season, Sashwati Banerjee, Managing Director, Sesame Workshop in India says, “Kids’ early experiences have a uniquely powerful influence on the formation of their cognitive capacities, social skills and even later I.Q. Hence, tapping them at a young age is extremely critical. Through positive role-modelling by our well-researched characters, we are able to bring about a positive change in little kids who start believing and trusting their beloved muppets. Hence, when Chamki talks to her friend Googly about saving water, our little viewers take it seriously and start acting towards water conservation.”

Hisham Mundol, Executive Director at Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, the organization which funds Galli Galli Sim Sim, says, “Our partnership with Sesame Workshop has brought interesting synergies to the table and has given us new insights into how content for kids can be approached and adapted in countries like India. Through the power of muppets and media, Galli Galli Sim Sim in its own unique way is impacting young Indian learners, helping them become informed

decision makers of tomorrow. It has been our constant endeavor to engage with like-minded partners like Sesame who showcase their passion towards providing access to high-quality early childhood content.”

Richa Sahai, Creative & Business Head, RedDot Productions shares, “This will be our 2nd year of working with Sesame Workshop and we are delighted to produce this season as well. It is a pleasure to be a part of this journey and build on the Galli Galli Sim Sim legacy every year. Our collective goal has always been to engage kids with compelling, meaningful content and we are hoping to deliver this best through Galli Galli Sim Sim.”

So don’t forget to catch the show on Doordarshan on every Saturday at 10.30 am.
