Es-tu prêt ?
(40 x 2:30 minutes)

 

Préparez-vous à une série éducative pour enfants où ce sont eux qui enseignent !

 

OTTAWA, 29 mai 2020 – Les créateurs de contenu pour enfants primés de GAPC Entertainment lancent une toute nouvelle série éducative d’âge préscolaire : Es-tu prêt ?

 

Faisant ses débuts sur tfo.org, Es-tu prêt ? présente des modèles de vrais enfants d’âge préscolaire (2 à 5 ans) montrant comment effectuer des tâches quotidiennes. Nos petits leaders couvrent toute la gamme des exploits, que ce soit de monter les escaliers et se coiffer les cheveux, en passant par attacher ses lacets et se brosser les dents. Es-tu prêt ? fait ses débuts en ligne sur les plateformes de TFO le 6 juin 2020.

 

Cette série met en vedette un ensemble diversifié de talents locaux sélectionnés suite à des auditions ouvertes à Ottawa. Chaque épisode présente des techniques faciles à comprendre, mais aussi des erreurs que les petits reconnaîtront, suivies d’encouragements pour essayer de nouveau. Ainsi, les jeunes téléspectateurs se sentiront prêts à franchir un nouveau jalon dans leur cheminement vers l’indépendance. La confiance en soi des enfants à l’écran est contagieuse ! Avec des moments amusants, authentiques et colorés, soyez prêts à entreprendre de nouvelles tâches après chaque épisode.
 

 

Es-tu prêt ? a été développé avec l’aide de professionnels de la petite enfance. Les techniques que les enfants apprendront les amèneront à devenir indépendants et à mieux évoluer à la maison, à la garderie, à l’école et dans le monde !  Es-tu prêt ? aide les enfants à acquérir pour la vie des notions de base liées à l’apprentissage, au comportement et au bien-être. C’est aussi simple – et essentiel – que d’enfiler son pantalon le matin !

 

Alors, prépare-toi – elle peut le faire, il peut le faire, ils peuvent le faire, et toi aussi ! Es-tu prêt ?

 

Es-tu prêt ? et Es-tu prêt pour une fête ? ont été filmés entièrement à Ottawa, conçus et produits par GAPC Entertainment en association avec TFO, et avec la participation financière des Fonds des médias du Canada et Fonds Shaw-Rocket.
