Learning Time is Anytime

Parents are their child’s first teacher
May 26, 2021

This year continues to look different in almost every aspect of life, education being one of most impacted. Virtual learning took precedence when COVID-19 hit. 

Developing and learning are a priority in a young child’s life so why does education have to stop when there isn’t a teacher or classwork? KLRN’s “Play & Learn” offers young pre-schoolers the opportunity to grow while they learn.

Play & Learn is “learning time anytime.” This program brings parents and their children together to assist children in their educational growth. Teachers spend one-on-one time with parents to inform them of ways to help further their child’s growth and help them offer a quality educational experience. Families are provided children’s books, take-home activities, and materials that they can use in their own homes. Play & Learn not only assists in educational growth but relationship building with their peers. Here is what some participants have to say:

  • “…As I am growing into my parenthood, [virtual learning] helps me prepare our daughter as she continues to grow.” - Olivia
  • [The best part was} “the bonding that my daughter and I had.” - Meghan
  • [I appreciated] “how interactive it was for my little one; we liked the hands-on crafts and making new things… Also, the tips on behavior.” - Tricia

Strong educational experiences and a supportive environment set a student up for success. United Way and its nonprofit partners work tirelessly to ensure children, students and their families have the resources needed to reach their full potential.
