A TV channel specialized in early educational programs catering to China's 200 million Chinese infants aged from zero to eight years was launched by the China Education TV station (CETV) Saturday.
There are nearly 280 million children aged under 14 years in China, accounting for 21.5 percent of the total population. The population aged from zero to eight year, regarded as infants in the country, stands at around 200 million, accounting for 15 percent of the total.
"Early education of infants is of great importance to China's efforts to build a harmonious society in the country," said Kang Ning, director of the TV station.
While all countries in the world attach much importance to infant education, Chinese educational agencies and media fail to provide sufficient products and services to meet the growing demand for infant education, she said.
With the launching of the specialized TV channel, the CETV will invite experts to join in the designing and production of programs, Kang said. The TV station will also cooperate with domestic and overseas media and telecommunication companies to provide good services.
