It can be downloaded from the App Store on Apple TV and functions on both HD as well as 4K versions of Apple TV. To open the app, families can use the Siri Remote and say "Hey Siri, open YouTube Kids." If they choose to sign into the app on their TV, their parent controls and settings will transfer to the YouTube Kids experience on Apple TV. If they want to change any of their settings, they can do so in the app on a tablet or phone.
