Education

WGCU Public Media’s educational outreach is a unique service that connects us to the community. Whether it’s distributing the monthly teacher newsletter or presenting a workshop, WGCU is committed to supporting Southwest Florida teachers, students and families.

WGCU Curious Kids is a multi-faceted project created to support Southwest Florida families.

  • The Curious Kids TV show is hosted by and for local kids. A new half hour episode premiers each quarter.  
  • The Curious Kids Learning Workshops are held at select Title I schools and focus on family literacy. Parents and children learn and have fun together and take home a new book after each session.
  • The partnership between WGCU and the Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples/C’mon includes the Curious Kids exhibit space (a no parents allowed, hands-on space for kids ages 8-12) and WGCU Presents! events that include an appearance by a PBS Kids character, activities and giveaways.

Florida PBS LearningMedia is a free digital public media platform and education resource for classrooms, offered locally by WGCU Public Media. It includes more than 30,000 digital assets for PreK-12 educators from dozens of educational producers, partners and PBS stations. Florida PBS LearningMedia content is aligned to Common Core State Standards and educators can search, save and organize the cross-curriculum resources they use.
