A Place of Our Own


Eight-ASSET, is proud to offer KCET’s A Place of Our Own on air, online and through face to face workshops for families and caregivers of young children across Arizona. Dedicated to the unique needs of people who care for children ages birth to five, A Place Of Our Own airs on Eight at 5 am on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The companion show for Spanish speakers, Los Niños en Su Casa, airs on Eight at 5 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
