Ready, Set, Explore

Located throughout our region, these Saturday morning events link families, PBS characters, and learning together. With support from community agencies and sponsors, these family play dates allow children, aged 3-8, to engage with their families around meaningful, interesting content in fun, age-appropriate ways. They also get to play with their favorite PBS characters such as Curious George and Cat in the Hat. Over the next 18 months, witf will orchestrate 12 Ready Set, Explore events in our region. Themes for the RSE events can be tailored to meet the needs of community partners and include the arts, connections to nature, science topics like weather, animals, and space, literacy and health.

This year's first Ready Set Explore is on March 22!
