The spread of COVID-19 has tested the resiliency of governments, businesses, and individuals alike. With strong restrictions limiting the number of people who can gather in one place, businesses and schools have been forced to shift to working from home in order to continue functioning. However, this shift has dramatically upended the routine of parents and children, as parents have become the de facto teachers for their children while simultaneously trying to keep up with their own work schedules. And children, lacking the normal learning and socialization opportunities that schools provide, must adapt to this new structure while still progressing with early childhood development. In an effort to assist parents during this time of “crisis teaching,” Sesame Workshop has launched the Caring for Each Other Initiative. This initiative provides parents with resources, tips, and activities to keep their families engaged with learning throughout the pandemic and in a way that is fun and comforting for everyone.
Join this webinar to hear from Dr. Jeanette Betancourt, Senior Vice President of U.S. Social Impact for Sesame Workshop, on how Sesame Workshop is working with their partners to design and distribute resources in communities around the U.S.
