A health emergency, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, brings many changes and challenges for young children and families. But there are things we can do to face this new normal by staying healthy, keeping routines, and providing emotional support for one another while we continue to maintain a sense of optimism.
Join us to learn about our Caring for Each Other initiative, a new suite of resources to help the whole family find comfort, connect with one another, and take care of themselves too.
Additionally, we present materials created to support families before and after disasters. Whether a family is preparing for the unexpected or recovering from it, caregivers’ reassurance and comfort hold great power to soothe children even on the scariest and toughest days. For this session, we provide an overview of all these tools as well as strategies to put them into practice.
- Participants will learn how to best address the impact of COVID on young children’s well-being, their families, and the many educators and providers supporting them through two broad categories:
- Prevention, healthy habits, and coping with illness,
- Emotional Support for the “for now normal,” and the transition to the longer-term effects of a new and unique traumatic experience
- Determine the best strategies to keep families connected before and after a natural or man-made disaster
- Become familiar with and apply the resources hosted on the online platform of Sesame Street in Communities into current work plans
- Hear how other providers and organizations currently utilize these tools and resources in their work
