As the school year comes to a close and it is time to start thinking about summer learning. Once again PBS Kids is here to help!
This year PBS KIDS has partnered with some amazing companies to ensure that parents have the resources needed to help their child continue to learn during the summer months.
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema: PBS KIDS and Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas will be continuing their ‘PBS KIDS at the Alamo’ screening events throughout the summer, featuring special screenings of ODD SQUAD, NATURE CAT and DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD. These events feature the educational, award-winning content from PBS KIDS series, as well as special premium giveaway items and activities. Children see their favorite characters and stories come to life on the big screen, and one hundred percent of the discounted ticket prices ($1-$3) is donated to local PBS stations to support educational programming.
