WEIU - The Kids' Choice!
Each week, WEIU-TV broadcasts more than 40 hours of quality PBS Kids programming. These programs not only entertain, but also focus on literacy development, healthy lifestyles, and positive social skills.
Partnership with CCR&R
WEIU Educational Services
WEIU has engaged in a collaborative effort with Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) to provide training and resources for teachers, parents and child care providers to extend the learning power of the children's programming we broadcast. Our services include:
- Community-based projects such as child care provider literacy visits.
- Health and literacy outreach.
- Book and literacy kit distribution programs, events, and more.
CCR&R is part of the Illinois Network of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies and is funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services.
