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.

Join KET for a free Changing Seasons Training

January 10, 2023 - Join us at KET on February 2 as we highlight PreK-2nd grade resources from the Changing Seasons collection on PBS LearningMedia. These resources were developed through a co-design model, partnering with PBS KIDS and the PNC Foundation, to connect with PreK teachers and PBS member stations, such as KET to align materials from the Grow Up Great Lesson Center with PBS KIDS content. The result… new seasons-themed resources available for PreK teachers– all available in English and in Spanish.
