Podcasts have become a part of our [almost] daily life and I would consider them an absolute asset and tool for our homeschooling as well. They help to limit screen time (win!) as he typically listens while he plays. I’m pretty sure I’ve “tested” just about every podcast geared toward children that exists, in order to vet what’s age-appropriate for Benjamin. From there, I listened to my favorites with Benjamin to see what he thought of them. We are happy to share what we think are the very best pods out there for preschoolers!
First on our list is the Disney Story Central Podcast! This is definitely Benjamin’s favorite podcast and it’s the best story-telling pod I’ve heard as well! If you and your family love Disney as much as us, then you’re going to want to subscribe to this one immediately. They do an excellent job condensing the Disney stories we know and love! The stories are around 5-20 minutes long, which makes them great even on short car rides around town. The music is great and the voice actors are phenomenal.
- The Children’s Corner is probably not one you need to subscribe to, as all of the stories were released in 2007 and there are no updates. However, they’re definitely worth a listen. While you may notice that the music is probably a copyright no-no, the stories/narration are great.
- Story Pirates Podcast “turn stories written by kids from across the country into awesome sketches and songs tailor-made for the radio.” This is definitely one of the more silly podcasts we listen to. Benjamin laughs a lot!
