The Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Performer in Children's Programming is an Emmy award given to performers in television programming aimed towards children. During the 1970s and 1980s, guest performers in dramatic specials and regular performers on children's series competed in the same category. However, starting in 1989, separate categories for performances in children's series and performances in children's specials were created and used until after 2007 when all categories related to Children's Specials were dropped.[1]

The youngest Emmy nominee, Jodelle Ferland, was nominated in this category in 2001 at the age of six.[2] The youngest Emmy winner, Bindi Irwin, won the award in 2008 at the age of nine.[3]
