San Diego Zoo Kids

Nicklaus Children’s Hospital is pleased to offer the San Diego Zoo Kids channel in every patient room on channel 21. San Diego Zoo Kids is an innovative television channel that provides patients and families with animal-oriented programming that is both entertaining and educational. The stories told through the channel share the joy of animals with children, some of whom may be unable to visit the local zoo, due to illness. 

San Diego Zoo Kids offers:

  • Wildlife stories
  • Quizzes about animals and their habitats
  • Short video vignettes
  • Videos from San Diego Zoo and other zoos around the world
The stories shared on the channel not only provide wholesome entertainment to children during their time of healing but inspire them to appreciate wildlife and their natural habitats.
