Supporting Early Learning in Every Community

Posted by Dale Fisher on

We bring our unrivaled kids content to the community, too. Nine is honored to be selected to participate in the Ready to Learn Community Collaboratives for Early Learning and Media (RTL CC-ELM) initiative. We will work with Beyond Housing and East Side Aligned to reach children and families in the Normandy School Collaborative and Greater East St. Louis, respectively.

A national leader in community engagement, Nine will work within these communities to engage teachers and families in early science and literacy through PBS KIDS® resources so children can benefit from public media’s trusted and proven educational assets.

As part of RTL CC-ELM, Nine will leverage content from trusted PBS KIDS® series Ready Jet Go! and The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!, along with other media assets, that will address scientific inquiry and informational texts for young children. We will also use the recently released PBS KIDS Playtime Pad, which features more than 25 educational games; 120 video clips, songs, and music videos; and free PBS KIDS apps, to support our RTL CC-ELM work in the community.
