KidZone TV

Mount Sinai's KidZone TV is a state-of-the-art, interactive production and internal broadcast studio within Kravis Children’s Hospital. KidZone TV produces live programming three times a day, seven days a week, for pediatric patients and families. We broadcast KidZone TV programs throughout the Kravis Children’s Hospital on a dedicated channel. Dynamic pre-produced programming compliments live shows, providing 24/7 viewing.

We also offer national training and serve as a model for premiere in-house interactive broadcast programming for children’s hospitals worldwide.

Our KidZone TV goals are to:

  • Educate children and families about the hospital environment
  • Encourage your child’s self-expression and creativity
  • Increase socialization opportunities for children and families
  • Create a therapeutic diversion for patients and families experiencing stresses of hospitalization and illness

Hospitalized children confined to their rooms can tune in and participate in KidZone TV programming three times each day. Live entertainment includes musicians, actors, choirs, magicians, and science programs. We promote learning, socialization, and creativity through popular interactive games like Bingo, Name That Tune, Text Twist, and KidZone Trivia shows. In addition, KidZone TV Presents features entertainers and celebrities who lend excitement to daily programming for our hospitalized young patients.

Children who are not confined to their rooms can participate as camera operators, storywriters, or hosts of the show, while others have the opportunity to view the program and participate by calling in and answering a question, creating a story, or winning prizes. Dynamic pre-produced programming complements live shows, providing 24/7 viewing.

The in-house broadcast studio is coordinated within the Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Department and is staffed by professional television media experts who serve as producer, hosts, editor, and managing production supervisor.

We also offer national training and serve as a model for premiere in-house interactive broadcast programming for children’s hospitals worldwide.
