PBS KIDS Storytime: Voices from the Learning Ecosystem

Wednesday Lunch, 12:30 - 1:45 PM
Do you remember the first time a teacher or caring adult sparked your curiosity? Or the look of excitement on your kids’ faces when they learned something and it opened a new world of possibilities? Join PBS KIDS to hear stories from stations, educators, and caregivers about their “aha!” moments in early learning. While exploring the importance of early education, they will share storytelling best practices for you to bring back to your station. This will inspire you to identify stories of impact in your community and leverage them to build value locally.
