Ready, Set, Learn! was a preschool block that aired on TLC from December 28, 1992 to September 26, 2008, and Discovery Kids from October 7, 1996 to October 8, 2010.

The block was initially hosted by children's entertainer Rory Zuckerman, who was billed as simply "Rory". In 1996, Discovery Kids began to air its shows in its schedule upon its launch as one of the first digital cable networks.

On February 24, 2003, Ready Set Learn introduced Paz the Penguin, who was seen in the block's official logo. TLC aired the last airing of the block on September 26, 2008, and replaced it with repeats of their regular programming three days later.

On October 10, 2010, Discovery Kids was re-launched as The Hub (the present day Discovery Family) as a joint venture with Hasbro, and the former RSL programming was replaced by more broad appeal children's programming the next day.
