Hi Opie!

Hi Opie! is an entertaining and heartwarming live-action preschool series that follows the social, emotional and intellectual escapades of 5-year-old Opie, a new kid in kindergarten and your new friend. Opie and his real kid classmates are in their first year of kindergarten – uncertain just what to expect. With each new day, Opie learns more about himself, his friends and his two teachers.

Each story marks a new chapter in Opie’s personal growth as he participates in, struggles with and inevitably succeeds in kindergarten activities. With a clear and attainable goal, it is the process of learning through play – having fun, exploring, asking questions, experimenting with the consequences of one’s actions, persevering through adversity, imagining and, of course, continuing to be curious – that leads to Opie’s personal growth.

Hi Opie! is a fun-filled introduction to the joys, fears, challenges and triumphs of kindergarten.
