An essential element for improving education, workforce and life outcomes for Kentuckians is focusing on kids’ early learning and readiness for kindergarten. With a variety of resources, including educator trainings, family workshops and hands-on children’s activities, KET helps prepare our youngest citizens to be kindergarten ready.

We’re dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of children, teachers and families, with high-quality early childhood instructional resources and in-person and online training opportunities.

Our on-air programming, which includes the 24/7 KET PBS KIDS channel, is designed to boost cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development.
