Previous Research on Programs

The Ready To Learn Initiative provides universal free access to high quality, research- and curriculum based, noncommercial children's educational programming. PBS KIDS Ready To Learn television programming demonstrates a variety of approaches to learning and addresses a range of cognitive and affective school readiness skills, including language and literacy skills, vocabulary acquisition and fluency, social and emotional skills necessary for receptivity to cognitive learning, and self-help skills that encourage physical well-being and development. PBS KIDS Ready To Learn set a new standard for excellence in educational children's television by funding the development of the award-winning programs Between the Lions and Dragon Tales.
