Ready to Learn!
GPB is proud to be a Ready To Learn (RTL) station, joining other PBS stations around the United States to leverage trusted PBS KIDS content and curriculum to improve kindergarten readiness, family engagement, and STEAM and literacy skills for children ages 2-8. Through this U.S. Department of Education-funded initiative, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), PBS, and local PBS stations provide free, evidence-based educational opportunities for children and families, especially those from underserved communities.
Research shows that these resources and opportunities:
- Increase math, literacy and science learning
- Improve children’s school readiness
- Foster an interest in learning beyond the classroom
- Support effective media use in classrooms and other early learning settings
