Going To School

A Ready To Learn Service of the Educational Services Department of Alabama Public Television designed for parents and child care professionals serving children, ages three to five years old. It is delivered as either a 10-part series of 30 minute programs for Broadcast Distance Learning or a 10-part series for Face-to-Face Training. It presents current and practical advice on supporting children’s early learning for school readiness and success.
