Ready to Learn Program

Ready To Learn, a project administered through the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Innovation and Improvement,encourages the development and use of video and digital programming to promote early learning and school readiness for young children and their families, and the dissemination of educational outreach programs and materials to promote school readiness.

A Ready to Learn grant was awarded to HITN in 2010 to support the development and distribution of the research-based Pocoyo PlaySet, educational outreach materials and broad distribution to ensure as many young children as possible, particularly low-income children, have access to these educational materials.
