How It Works

Vermont PBS will air specialized learning content each weekday from 7am-3pm on our MAIN channel, 12pm-5pm on our PLUS+ channel, and 7am-11am on our PBS KIDS channel. Combined with the resources found below, teachers and caregivers can develop an at-home curriculum that includes activities, assignments and learning objectives. Educational programming for younger kids will remain on our Kids 24/7 Channel on-air and online for safe, fun and commercial free programming.

Although the programs are all available on television according to the schedule, some may require a PBS Passport for online and on demand access. Additional information about a program, which can helpful for planning purposes, is available without a PBS Passport.

Attention Burlington / Plattsburgh Dish Network subscribers: Our Plus+ and Kids channel have been added to channels 35 and 36 during the At Home Learning programming. Please contact Dish for details and questions.
