A Service for Grown-ups Who Care About Children

The primary goal of WGVU's Ready To Learn service is to use the best children's programming on television in ways that help young children enter school ready to learn.

Each weekday WGVU-TV broadcasts over 8 hours of PBS Kids TV programs that actively engage children ages 0-8 in learning skills they need to start school and be successful learners once in school. Through our Ready To Learn service, which was created in partnership with the U.S. Department of Education, WGVU has helped more than 7,500 adults prepare 87,000 children for academic success, using a powerful combination of educational programming and community workshops.

Ready to Learn Workshops

Our trainers meet with parents, child care providers, teachers, and children at schools, child care centers, agencies, libraries, and resource and referral classes to share strategies for combining WGVU children's programs with related activities and books. This helps adults extend the value of what children watch on WGVU and use TV as a teaching tool.

This strategy is called the Learning Triangle.

Our community partners such as area resource and referral agencies, have helped WGVU-TV train over 7,500 adults who reach over 87,000 children.
