Support lifelong learning
WHYY Education may be best known for the 11-1/2 hours of children's programming it broadcasts weekdays on TV as well as weekend hours dedicated to children. But that is just the first step on the path to lifelong learning for those who watch. Through on-air programs, off-air outreach programs, live events, professional development opportunities, WHYY Education contributes to the healthy development and education of children, and acts as an educational partner to parents, childcare providers, and educators in the Delaware Valley.
