Ready, Set, Learn! was a preschool block that aired on TLC from October 26, 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, as part of their continuing transformation into a pop-culture reality television channel, removed the block after its final airing on that network on September 26, 2008, and replaced it with repeats of their daytime and primetime programs. As a result, all Ready, Set, Learn programs only aired on Discovery Kids.

On October 10, 2010, the Discovery Kids channel 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.
