ABC KIDS listen is a dedicated audio app for preschoolers, brought to you by the ABC.

Our aim is to provide children aged 0-5 and their families with a way to access the music and stories from the ABC that they love in a trusted online environment. ABC KIDS listen cares about providing Australian families with a safe space for their children to access educational and entertaining audio content.

You and your child can listen to our radio station, which has been designed to suit the changing needs of a child’s day and night, or simply choose a program on demand that best suits your needs at that moment.

Our programs are inspired by the Early Years Learning Framework of Australia, which encourages children to learn through play. The high quality audio programs give preschoolers a space where they can get their bodies moving and brains working. Explore, learn, and play, and later wind down, rest, and sleep.

Episodes can be downloaded and will then be available for seven days in the app before expiring, allowing for listening without an internet connection.

It’s free and commercial free. Other ABC apps designed specifically for preschoolers and their families include ABC KIDS iview and ABC KIDS PLAY.

Life changing app!

FJ Oh-laa

Saying an app is life changing sounds like an overstatement but I’ve only just downloaded this app and it has introduced a whole new repertoire of play, activities and relaxation time into our home. On the first day, listening to ‘make and do’ we were inspired to transform a cardboard box into a car in an instant, and painted pictures as we listened. The next day our daughter listened to storytime for 30min while I got on with stuff! Seriously, life changing for me!

Has really helped overnight


We are loving the different types of music on here.
Both of my boys enjoy the daytime music varieties when we are doing little activities.
My toddler has been rather unsettled overnight and when dropping off to sleep but the music on here (Lullabies and Dream Time are our favourites) do the trick and yet offer enough variation that I’m not irritated listening to it, I find it relaxing myself!

We adore this!


Love, love, love everything about the app. So much content to choose from and the quiet time programs actually work! 🙊Beautiful music, not repetitive or just the standard "wheels on the bus" kids songs. Lots and lots of variety, very refreshing for parents to listen to as well. Thank you ABC kids! 🍎🐝🥕
