Hi, it’s me, Angela Santomero!
I’m a mom, creator of hit preschool tv shows, and an author. My mission is to empower kids and parents and help build their self esteem.
Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood
“I’m passionate about putting little nods of love into every episode of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. They’re little reminders of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood & Fred Rogers himself.”
“Fantastic reading! Angela’s work extends the impact of gratitude & the science of positive psychology.” -John Sharp, MD, professor of psychiatry, Harvard & UCLA
Blue’s Clues Reboot
“I have never been more excited to work on a project than Blue’s Clues & You, the reboot of my first show, Blue’s Clues. I can’t wait to share it with you!”
“Angela Santomero reveals the elements that make her shows both entertaining & educational, & clues parents to do the same in their everyday moments with young children.” -Joanna Faber & Julie King, How to Talk so Little Kids Will Listen
Let’s get to know each other
Along with being a mom, I’m the creator of many of your preschoolers favorite television shows.
I have a masters in Child Developmental Psychology, and I’ve been applying everything I know to making media that helps kids learn, develop and grow. And that parents can trust.
Check out my blog for tips on nurturing the best in kids. I also love to share what I know in guest appearances on shows and podcasts, and I give talks on child development and how media affects children.
