Welcome to a world of sounds, music and voices that can help develop children’s listening and imagination.
CBeebies Radio is a daily web-based radio show for pre-school children. Little ones can join in with listening activities and share adventures with lots of CBeebies favourites. CBeebies Radio is here to help grown-ups and their family routines.
Listening to child-friendly radio like CBeebies Radio can make a positive difference to children’s concentration and listening skills. One of the greatest benefits of learning to listen well is the impact it has on a child’s awareness of the difference between sounds and words - that gets children really ‘in tune’ with the power of language and they start to want to express their own ideas – all by themselves.
Radio helps children imagine, dream and enter an imaginary space. ‘Thinking in pictures’ is a unique and unforgettable experience. It exercises the brain’s power to produce images that are our very own.
Moving to music is also great for children and is a fun thing to do with your child. Coordinating those arms and legs and jiggling around gives children the chance to hear the beat and express themselves in their own way.
Take CBeebies with you
We all know that travelling with little ones can be a challenge, so why not download some shows and use them as in-car entertainment on your next journey to the seaside, school runs, or even trips to the shops?
Your child's imagination can soar when they listen to our magical stories, quizzes, games and adventures. You can download the podcasts to a mobile device or MP3 player or use your computer to save them onto writable music CD. CBeebies Radio can help turn those miles into smiles!
