Growing Education: Early Beginnings
airing on WCTE...

July 30 7:00 p.m.
August 27 7:00 p.m. 

Early Beginnings is the third episode in WCTE’s Growing Education as a part of American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen, a public media initiative supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to help local communities across America address the dropout crisis. This episode will focus on the educational development of children ages three to six.  The series continues to explore factors that affect the development of a child’s brain, including living environment, attitudes and emotions in the home, healthy eating, and--most importantly--caring consistent adults. Parents and educators share their advice and experiences on the best way to prepare children for the early school years.  A new initiative sponsored by the Children’s Reading Foundation of the Upper Cumberland, Ready! for Kindergarten, is discussed by educators. Growing Education continues to focus on 'cradle to career' education for Upper Cumberland citizens.

WCTE's Educational Mission:

To make sure all children enter school Ready To Learn, become an American Graduate and develop a love of learning so they can become life-long learners. What distinguishes WCTE and PBS from other broadcasters is our public service commitment to fostering lifelong learning. This commitment is reflected in our on- air educational programs, our online services and in the work we do within the community.

These two initiatives powered by grants from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting allow WCTE to empower families and communities with the resources, tools and support to break cycles of generational poverty and chronic school underchievement, to narrow the achievement gap, and teach parents how to be their child's first teacher.
