WNIT Public Television – PBS Michiana is offering educational resources for parents and families to help during the coronavirus outbreak, while children are home. Through PBS KIDS programming, live streaming and online resources, WNIT provides high-quality, curriculum-based learning materials that are age appropriate and focus on various educational topics. Please see the attached materials, which detail programs that specifically target STEM subjects, literacy, social and emotional development and other key development areas. The materials also note on which channel the 24/7 PBS KIDS Channel on WNIT is carried locally.

WNIT is now offering a daily email highlighting that day’s programming for both children and families. PBS program partners, such as Sesame Street, are also providing important tools on talking to children about COVID-19. Families can sign up to receive this daily email, by going to wnit.org and clicking on the link in the story entitled “Are You On the List?”
