You may have seen or heard about our new free online toolkit for families, Healthy at Home: A Toolkit for Supporting Families Impacted by COVID-19, in the past week. This toolkit was created to help you get started supporting families during this time. We encourage you to direct families to this webpage and check back regularly for updates. We will continue to add resources from The Creative Curriculum® and ReadyRosie™ for families to use at home.
In addition, we want to highlight the resources found throughout our suite of Teaching Strategies® products that can help encourage families to nurture their children’s development and learning while schools are closed. Some of these features even spread the word about the Healthy at Home toolkit to families!
Because the educators we serve use different combinations of the products we offer, we’ve recorded a series of videos that demonstrate how teachers and administrators can leverage existing resources in each of our products to engage, educate, and support families.
