An excerpt from the flyer:

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 Sesame Street’s Caring for Each Other initiative, a new suite of resources from Sesame Street to help the whole family find comfort, connect with one another, and remember to take care of themselves. Additionally, we will discuss the materials created to support families before and after disasters.
