About Learning at Home

Daily life might have changed in recent weeks, but our passion for learning hasn’t. KCPT is proud to offer educational resources to parents and educators alike, bringing the classroom straight to you through PBS Kids Daily and additional programming and activities. From social and emotional learning to literacy and social studies, we offer standards-aligned lessons that prove even without a traditional school day, there’s still so much to learn and discover right from home.

Watch this Greater KC Chamber webinar from April 2 for tips on teaching kids at home.
