DStv Kids – School of Laughter
Where the best kiddies entertainment lives.
Encouraging your children to laugh is a lifelong gift - from you, to them.
Research has shown that laughter plays an important role in developing self-esteem, learning to problem-solve and honing social skills. It also helps children make sense of their world, develop empathy with others, reduce stress and pain, and largely build a happy, healthy child.
That’s why DStv has launched the School of Laughter, every parent’s go-to place for the best content to spark your kids’ laughter – and development. It’s a platform that has the best content where kids can find and learn different types of laughs that benefit them, at home, at school and on the go.
