Breck and Kylan Johnson scoured YouTube for any programming as good for their four young children as “Sesame Street.”
They didn’t want a hypnotic holding pattern for tiny tots. They sought something safe, educational and truly worth watching. YouTube programming for toddlers exists, but not the kind of quality the Johnsons wanted: something that parents with brains would enjoy and approve.
“Most of what exists is just for the endorphin rush,” Kylan said. “We saw an opportunity to provide content that’s beneficial and valuable.”
Both halves of this kid-oriented couple grew up with babysitting as a way of life, they said. They met as teenagers while working at a Christian summer camp where it was their job to be “100 percent on, 100 percent energetic, 100 percent positive” while managing mobs of energetic children, Breck said.
After that, Kylan studied film and web design while Breck studied nursing. Then the couple started having babies, got married and settled down in Vancouver.
