From Sesame Street to classroom learning to community support, Sesame has been sweeping clouds away for over five decades.

Since our flagship program debuted in 1969, Sesame has become a cultural touchpoint, bringing learning, laughter, and support to generations of children through irresistible stories and songs, lovable characters, and skills to help children thrive.

More than 50 years on, Sesame reaches far beyond the iconic TV show to meet the ever-changing academic, emotional, and social needs of children and families in communities from coast to coast.
