We’re partnering with Netflix this year as part of their #StreamTeam and you might have caught our Netflix Kids Shows List to watch with your kids last month. This month I wanted to focus more on the Netflix shows kids can also learn from!
These shows have all been approved by my kids so they not only provide a way for kids to learn about emotional well-being; they also keep them entertained!
Netflix Shows Kids Can Learn From
When it comes to Netflix shows kids can learn from, it’s definitely important to first find shows that they love to watch. You can’t teach them anything about emotional well-being and positive values if they don’t want to sit down and watch!
Netflix provided us with a parenting cheat sheet to help us choose some of the best Netflix kids shows for teaching about certain things such as respecting others, emotions, and tough lessons from life like honesty and patience.
This guide has some of our favorites from our Netflix kids shows list and also some new shows that I cannot wait to share with the kids!
We have a few favorites that aren’t on the Netflix guide, so check out our Netflix show list for teaching kids some of the important things about growing up and handling tough situations!
Care Bears & Cousins
Care Bears & Cousins is a favorite of mine because I’m a Care Bears fan from WAY BACK but as a parent, I’m also a fan of this Netflix Original show for kids. It’s on my list of Netflix shows kids can learn from because the episodes teach about things like friendship, empathy, and kindness.
Carrigan is a huge fan of all of the Care Bears and their cousins! I like that every episode has a great message for her to learn!
Clifford the Big Red Dog
Clifford the Big Red Dog has been a favorite of mine since I was teaching first grade. It was perfect for rainy day recess because the kids were always fans of this classic book character!
The same is true with my kids. We love reading Clifford books and have quite the little library. So it only makes sense that my kids watch Clifford the Big Red Dog on Netflix. They learn a lot about teamwork, sharing, and problem-solving which is why it makes my list of best Netflix kids shows.
Special Agent Oso
Special Agent Oso is my favorite Netflix kids shows for learning about problem-solving. The kids love Oso’s silly antics and I love hearing my kids laugh. But I also love how the show teaches kids how to handle challenges they might face. It teaches them how to break things down into steps and get it done!
When it comes to Netflix shows kids love, Julius Jr. one that my kids love! It’s full of music that sucks them (and catches my attention too) every time they watch it. We first discovered it on Nick Jr but love having access to the episodes on Netflix! It’s a show we’ve been watching for a few years!
As a parent, I love that it also has strong themes related to friendship, teamwork, and problem-solving! They’re learning while they have fun watching!
If you’re looking for some good kids shows, definitely check out the amazing variety of shows available on Netflix! Check out all of our Netflix Stream Team posts for more great ideas!

Dang, you didn’t just list shows that teach these values, but actually narrowed it down to specific episodes. Very cool! I’ll definitely save this just in case I ever need it :)
