Empowering Parents

Empowering Parents

Arkansas PBS believes that parents are a child's first teacher. Below you will find resources from Arkansas PBS, PBS and PBS KIDS to help you on your parenting journey.


Resources

Arkansas PBS is working to keep families learning all summer long with Camp AR PBS, a collection of free, fun online resources, programming, newsletters and more to help prevent the “summer slide,” where kids can lose two to three months of learning progress between school years.
Get started here.



Fill your days with creativity, exploration and fun from Camp AR PBS!



"Blueberry’s Clubhouse," an Arkansas PBS original series produced in partnership with the Arkansas Arts Center, will premiere Friday, July 24, at 10 a.m.
