KUED KIDS - Summer Shows & Apps



As part of its annual summer learning initiative, PBS KIDS will air all-new specials and episodes from ODD SQUAD, NATURE CAT and READY JET GO!, beginning in June, and will offer free digital resources at pbsparents.org/summer to make learning fun all summer long.

While kids are out of school during the summer months, it’s important that they remain engaged in learning and exploration. KUED Kids is committed to providing learning resources that help to bridge the achievement gap, especially to children in our community who need it most. Every year, we bring these resources to Utah families to encourage them to keep their minds active all summer long.

Parents can follow KUED Kids on Facebook, and PBS KIDS on Twitter and Facebook for more information on free summer learning resources and special offers.
