Select Television that Educates
All television teaches us something, the question is what? Today more than ever, you have so many choices—but some times, its difficult to decide what is appropriate and what isn't.
Viewers like you make a continual effort to include WQPT for your children. Quality programs that not only educate, but provide fun along the way. Learning, made fun... that's what WQPT and PBS is all about.
It is important to ask: What is it your child is learning and what do you want them to learn? Smart TV is grounded in the social, emotional and cognitive development skills of its young viewers.
PBS, along with affiliate stations like WQPT, work with experienced television producers who involve children, parents, educators, day-care providers, researchers and experts from a variety of fields in the design and production process.
The quality Kids program on WQPT have a curriculum —a list of things to learn—that can help kids succeed in school and in life. If possible, record the programs that you think are most appropriate for your child and show them when the time is right for your child's viewing.
