About Us

Get Curious, Parents! is a portal for parents and educators who seek tips, ideas, resources, and programs that families love and trust. By curating and developing learning resources based on your children’s favorite PBS programs—Curious George, Dinosaur Train, Sesame Street, Sid the Science Kid, and more—WQED strives to help parents embrace a child’s natural curiosity and wonder.

WQED is committed to inspiring and educating our community’s youngest learners with diverse resources that transform teaching and learning while highlighting the important role that parents play in a child’s early development. iQ: smartmedia, WQED's education initiative, empowers caregivers to help their child reach their full potential.

Our early education programs provide varied digital platforms for learning in key topics like math, science, engineering, literacy, and art. This multidisciplinary and multi-platform approach can inspire a child’s curiosity no matter what his or her preferred learning style might be-- listening, interacting, building, singing, drawing, listening, counting, dancing.

PBS is the most trusted and educational media brand for children, and the #1 source of media content for pre-school teachers. Through Get Curious, Parents!, WQED has made it even easier for educators and caregivers to find engaging videos, games, activities, and apps from PBS that inspire math and science curiosity in young children. Make Get Curious Parents! your web destination for high-quality pre-school, Head Start and kindergarten educational resources that highly skilled master teachers recommend and cherish. Look for materials suitable for a wide range of projects, games, extension activities, on-demand videos, interactive games, and simulations for your child.
