Have you checked out the Let’s Learn Kentucky website lately? It’s a kindergarten readiness resource hub for families and caregivers of young children.

Smart Start: A KET Special Report

This KET special report examines the importance of a child’s early years of development.

Host Renee Shaw is joined by a panel of childhood development experts who discuss ways parents and caregivers can support children in their early years and how the Commonwealth and local communities can help address the state’s shortage of workers in the early childhood development field. The program also features stories from across Kentucky examining how organizations are using innovative programs to enrich early learning experiences for children. The program is funded in part by the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky.
