Summer Slides Are For Playgrounds Not For Minds
And Netflix Can Help
Something weird happens every year, about this time. All the school uniforms, school supplies, and school sales start ramping up and taking over the airwaves while there's still plenty of summer left! We're not quite ready to leave the long, lazy days of summer for school yet! But with Netflix Kids and a little help from your friends on The Stream Team, nobody needs to freak out about a lack of learning or suffer the summer slide.
Everyone's heard about the summer slide by now... that dreaded phenomenon where kids lose months of learning every summer. School may be out, but learning doesn’t have to be, and Netflix makes summer learning A BLAST!

Give your little ones a summer brain-power boost by introducing them to something new with Netflix—whether you choose a documentary about dinosaurs or go on a math adventure to the moon. Learning rocks inside and outside of the classroom.
Here at ChiIL Mama we dig documentaries. My husband shoots documentaries & TV Shows all over the world, and we've learned soooooo many interesting things about a wide range of topics from watching his shows and more.
For the perfect way to beat the heat and indulge in some screen time, introduce your kids to something new with Netflix. It's a great way to relax and wind down after a full, active day of outdoor play too.
