PBS KIDS Summer Learning Project

Did you know that all young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer? At the same time, parents consistently cite summer as the most difficult time to ensure that their children have productive things to do.*

Avoid The Summer Slump
This summer, PBS KIDS - on your Community Idea Stations (WCVE PBS, WHTJ PBS, WCVW PBS) - is the place for double the learning and double the fun and staying ahead of the summer slump!

Double the Fun:
Starting in June, PBS KIDS will roll out a new weekday schedule on-air, featuring back-to-back episodes of family favorites Wild Kratts, Curious George, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Dinosaur Train, and Arthur throughout the day. The new schedule promises families double the fun and double the learning with double episodes. Check local listings to learn more.

Double the Learning:
Throughout the summer months, be sure to visit our Ready To Learn Facebook page often for fun summer learning tips and activities.
