If you are a parent, every summer you worry about summer brain drain. It’s a term people use to describe a loss of knowledge due to a lack of education. PBS has changed up their summer programing schedule to provide more of the key educational PBS KIDS programs kids love – more Wild Kratts, more Curious George, more Dinosaur Train, and more!
Throughout the summer, you’ll see multi-platform content, local partnerships and activities to help kids and parents learn and explore together and prevent learning loss all summer long. We’re collaborating with libraries, educators and others to offer educational resources and events for teachers, caregivers and families.
