Detroit Public Television in partnership with Southwest Solutions, United Children and Family, the Kresge Foundation and other sponsors are joining forces to present two community events we’re calling "Word Ready, School Ready," aimed at building awareness of the importance of early language development and school readiness. These family-oriented activities will provide essential information and connect parents and caregivers to resources in their community. 

We are organizing an amazing day for kids, families and partners – including an appearance by Daniel Tiger or another beloved PBS Kids character! 

April 7 - Word Ready, School Ready event on Detroit’s Eastside, scheduled from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at United Children and Families (9641 Harper Ave., Detroit, MI 48213). Our mission is to match young children with quality preschool programs, empower families and connect them to resources. 

April 21 - Word Ready, School Ready event in Southwest Detroit, scheduled from 12-3 p.m. at the Ford Resource and Engagement Center (2826 Bagley St., Detroit, MI 4216). Same idea as above, just different location.
