The Fred Rogers Company
The Fred Rogers Company, in partnership with the Allegheny Intermediate Unit’s Head Start and Math and Science Collaborative, the University of Pittsburgh’s Collaborative for Evaluation and Assessment Capacity, and Rockman, with funding from the National Science Foundation, leads the Peg + Cat Early Learning of Math Through Media (ELM2) Project. ELM2 supports the integration of an animated math-based PBS television series, Peg + Cat, professional development for Head Start teachers, and family engagement resources. ELM2 will design and disseminate Facilitator and Educator Resource Guides to support more students, families, and practitioners in early mathematics. ELM2 is expected to reach 80 educators and 1,500 children and families in Head Start programs.
