We help educate

We educate children, parents, providers and educators on a variety of topics that expand and enrich lives. We strive to improve the likelihood of success for low literate, low income, English language learners, and special needs families through literacy and child development workshops. We visit preschools and elementary classrooms throughout the region and provide thousands of free books and learning materials to students whose families cannot afford them.

We sponsor and facilitate professional development opportunities for Early Childhood educators. In addition, we host station events like Imagination Station and other supported community activities that bring families together.

As part of the PBS network, we offer an array of entertaining and educational programs for children and outstanding resources for families, educators and childcare providers.
