Learning at home this summer

  • Fred Vigeant

Since April 27, 2020 WITF has allocated a portion of the broadcast day to expand the opportunities for distance learning as part of our television schedule. This collection of programming is in coordination with the State Department of Education, Intermediate Units across the state and all 7 Pennsylvania PBS Stations. Learn more about WITF’s Learning at Home initiative.

Beginning June 21, this initiative will move into a new phase with emphasis on younger learners in coordination with PBS Kids programming. The Learning at Home block will consist of a subset of the PBS Kids programming from 7am to noon daily. Programs in bold are part of the Learning at Home effort through the summer:

  • 6am – Odd Squad
  • 6:30am – Nature Cat
  • 7am – Molly of Denali
  • 7:30am – Wild Kratts
  • 8am – Hero Elementary
  • 8:30am – Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum

  • 11am – Sesame Street
  • 11:30am – Pinkalicious & Peterrific

This schedule will continue through Labor Day weekend (September 3).
