Caring for Each Other: How to Use Sesame Street in Communities Resources for Health Emergencies with Families Now
Aired: April 1, 2020

We’re all in this together, and that’s why we’re all coming together. Sesame Workshop and the Brazelton Touchpoints Center are partnering to share with you helpful online resources to stay informed, engaged, and responsive to the needs of children and families in your neighborhood through health emergencies.

As a result of COVID-19, families around the world are needing to adjust, adapt, and keep each other safe. In response, Sesame Workshop is launching the Caring for Each Other initiative—a long-term commitment to supporting families for the duration of this crisis. While we strive to give our children as much structure and stability as we can, it’s important we take care of ourselves, so we can best care for our children.

Your friends on Sesame Street are here to support you, and together with health and early childhood experts and partners from the Brazelton Touchpoints Center, want to make sure you have resources to support children and families during this time. Join us for a 60-minute conversation about how to use Sesame Street videos, games, and other assets so families can feel healthy, find comfort, and learn playfully at home!
