Does your child want to be featured on ABC’s Play School?

Play School are going ‘Through The Windows’ with kids across Australia. Share your home videos with them and they might appear on their TV show. 

The Play School team are looking for 3–6 year olds to show them a slice of their life for an upcoming series called “Where I Belong”. Pick a topic from the list below, and let the kids do the talking. Unfortunately, they can’t include every video they receive, however if yours is successful, they will be in touch with you.

Submissions close 4:30pm (Adelaide time) on Monday 7 December 2020.

STEP 1 – Pick a topic

Please read the relevant topic page on the Play school website HERE for detailed instructions of what to include in your video.

If you are interested in more than one topic, you can make multiple submissions.

GRANDPARENTS – Show what your child and their Grandparent/s love doing together. A favourite activity like cooking, painting, going for a bushwalk or learning about your culture – it can be anything. 

PETS –  Introduce your pet. Do you live on a farm with horses? Maybe you live in an apartment and have pet fish. Let the audience know anything and everything about your special pet. 

COMMUNITY GARDEN – Do you belong to a community garden? What do you grow? Delicious fruit and veggies you can eat? Take everyone on a tour of your community garden, do some gardening or introduce us to your fellow gardening friends. 

SPECIAL FRIENDS – Introduce your child and their bestie. What’s their favourite activity? What makes their friendship special? What’s one thing they have taught each other?

TEACHERS – Does your child have a special teacher? A dance teacher, sports coach, language teacher, additional needs teacher? Let them introduce their teacher. Show something your little one and their mentor are working on – a new dance, a new song in another language, or maybe you’re learning to swim or read. 

Step 2 – Record your video

It is requested that these are shot in a high definition landscape format, in a well-lit area such as outdoors where you have good quality sound and keep your phone or camera static on a tripod, or filmed by a freestanding parent/friend (i.e. not hand-held selfie).

If you are unable to record all of the material that you would like to provide in one video, you can record multiple videos. For example, you may want to record all of the answers to the questions on your topic in one video, and then record other vision about your topic in another video.

See more tips on the ABC website. 


Step 3: Share your video with the Play School team

Once you have recorded your video, log in using the “log in” button on the bottom of their webpage. When you are logged in, a submission form will load.

You can either upload your video directly in the “video” section or the URL to an online video storage service (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive etc.) in the “text” section. Note you can only submit one video at a time, so if there are multiple videos you want to share, you need to fill out and submit the form for each one. The maximum video size is 250MB. 


Submissions close 4:30pm Adelaide time on Monday 7 December 2020.

Should your video be chosen, Play School will contact you, as you will need to complete a Performance Release form for every person who appears in your video.
