One of primary goals as a station and your regional partner is to help children succeed in school. We broadcast outstanding educational programs for kids, but we also move beyond the family living room to engage and inspire children to be ready and eager to learn.
Over the past decade we have educated parents, providers, teachers and children on a variety of topics that expand and enrich their lives. We have improved the prospects of low literate, low income, English as a second language, rural and special needs families through literacy and child development workshops. We have visited preschools and elementary classrooms throughout the Quad Cities region and provided thousands of free books and learning materials to students whose families cannot afford them. We have sponsored professional development opportunities for early childhood educators, and we have hosted numerous station events and supported community activities that bring families together.
As part of the PBS network, we offer an incredible array of entertaining and educational programs for children and outstanding resources for families, educators and childcare providers.
