Ready to Learn


The goal of WMHT's Ready To Learn service is to strengthen early literacy and math skills and prepare children for success in school, as well as encouraging adults to watch television and videos with children, use PBS’ educationally-sound children’s programs and online resources as tools for learning at home, at school and at day care: to reinforce learning anytime, anywhere.

For four decades, the public media system has worked to improve literacy among the country's most disadvantaged children. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) has released a report, Findings from Ready To Learn: 2005-2010 (PDF), developed with cooperation from PBS and the U.S. Department of Education, that reaffirms the important role public media plays in educating children ages 2-8.

Through Ready To Learn workshops, parents and early childhood educators learn how to use activities, books, PBS programs and digital resources to strengthen educational concepts for children. For workshop information, or to inquire about scheduling a workshop, call (518) 880-3484 or e-mail us.
