Children will spend much of their lives on the rails, travelling at speeds in excess of 20 kilometres per hour.
The railroads, too, have grown to accommodate large numbers of children, and many have had to find creative ways to get them along.
The Children’s Television Workshop (CTW) is a non-profit organisation that works to educate and support the interests of children and young people.
Its aim is to promote the development of children’s programming and to increase access to child-friendly content.
Its work is being undertaken in a number of ways.
It has developed a platform to make online play accessible for children through the CTV website.
This website has also been developed in partnership with the CTE.
In a recent interview with CBC News, CTV chief executive Peter Meacham said he hopes that the platform will become a source of inspiration for other broadcasters to do the same.
“We want to be a place for children to come, and to see, and interact with, content that they love, which is something that is very hard to do in Canada,” Meachams said.
“It’s very hard for kids to get to this platform.”CTV’s platform includes videos, podcasts, and other materials that provide a unique opportunity for children.
CTV’s website includes interactive content, such as how-tos for parents and how-to videos for teachers.
“It’s an opportunity for kids, young people, and parents to see what is really going on in the world, and that it’s not always as bad as people think it is,” Mechams said of the platform.
“And they can share that information, and learn about things that they might be interested in.”
According to Meachames, the platform can also be used to help children understand the issues that are important to them.
“A lot of our programs that are aimed at children have a lot of factual information,” he said.
“For example, what is the difference between the rail system and the water system?”
Meachams says the platform is also designed to be accessible for older children, especially those who are not as well-versed in technology as young children are.
“As a parent, I know how important it is for my child to be able to look at the things they can see on television and see what’s going on around them, because I have a very hard time looking at the children who aren’t looking at that stuff,” he added.
Meacham says that the CTS has also developed a children’s section, a place where parents can learn about topics such as rail safety, child health and welfare, and children’s safety.
He says the CTC has already had some success in developing programs for older audiences.
“The CTE has done a great job with older audiences,” he says.
“There are a number things that are on the platform that are very well designed and well thought out.”CBC News visited the CTF’s studios and spoke to a number members of the CTP, including its director, Pauline Blois.
Blois says she believes that the future of the site is bright.
“I think it’s going to be very exciting,” she said.
