Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Children's Series facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

The Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Children's Series is an Emmy award given to television programming aimed towards children. Children's television has been recognized at the Emmys since the inaugural year. In 1995, a separate award for pre-school children's television was created. The two categories have been recognized since then. Starting in 2018, a distinction between children's series and educational series was created, resulting in two separate categories.
