Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. ABC KIDS have announced that changes are coming to the morning TV schedule from Monday 3 July. Including Play School.
Parents are outraged that ABC KIDS dare to mess with their morning routine. Don’t they realise this will mean hundreds of kids will miss their favourite show because they will be dropping older siblings at school around the time play School will be screening.
One mum wrote, “I hate program changes. I can tell the time by what’s on. My son only watches a few shows, but the programming was fine. He’ll never see Thomas now, too late, usually out and about/ activities etc”
Another said, “What exactly is the point of switching playschool & Sesame Street? If you’re going to have them anyway just leave them where they were so you don’t irritate people for no reason.”
“No (sad face emoji) why did you change the times of play school and sesame street? Play school is my daughters fav show but we don’t normally turn the TV on until 9:30 so we will miss it!”
“Play School time change was a bad move. We’ll never watch it now. Won’t even be back in time after school run with younger child. Disappointed!”
One mum pointed out, “Do you ever consider the kids with special needs? They like routine.”
” Disappointed regarding Play School. We will miss most of it with the school run! My younger two will miss it.”
Troubling news in from @abctv Playschool time is moving to 9am?! Why! I need to get the kids to school, then a coffee, THEN Playschool so I can get jobs done. I know this new digital age means people can watch whenever, on demand, recorded etc but some things are sacred and a 9.30am Playschool is one of those things. WON’T SOMEBODY THINK OF THE MUMS, I MEAN CHILDREN. CHILDREN! ????(much like the time Clingwrap changed its cutter, it’s time to sort this shit out) #playschool #dontplaywithplayschool
Will this change have an impact on your morning routine?
