Ready, Set, Explore

WITF loves creating opportunities to engage with families in our community. Due to COVID-19, we are currently unable to engage with you in the ways we used to. Look for new resources and creative outreach at Your Learning Neighborhood. We can’t wait to see you again in person when it is safe to do so.

Located throughout our region, these events typically occur on Saturday mornings and 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 Daniel Tiger. Themes for the Ready Set Explore events are tailored to meet the needs of communities and include the arts, connections to nature, science topics like weather, animals, space, literacy and health.
