For Pippy, her Dad and others who have said kind words – you might like to know that Numberjacks won the Royal Television Society’s Award for best pre-school educational programme, which of course we are delighted about.
The Royal Television Society have the following to say about it:
This winning programme is an innovative combination of live action and animation of great appeal for its audience, made with a thorough understanding of how young children learn and rehearse basic mathematical concepts.
We second that!
Congratulations to all at OpenMind from a raving fan (and his daughter!)
