To Share with Families:

  • Daily Schedules for Children ages 2 - 4- Programs can share these sample schedules with families to use these to plan and create a flexible and consistent daily routine for their infants, toddlers, and preschoolers while learning at home. 
  • Credible Media for Young Children provides examples of digital tools, including apps and websites, for parents and children to support learning across all areas of development. Share these with families.

For Staff:

  • Effective Teaching Strategies in Virtual Classrooms uses the lens of the CLASS tool to help teachers identify some effective teaching strategies to try when conducting classes online. What’s most important to remember is that interactions still matter, maybe now more than ever. The skills you have already built around connecting with, supporting, and stimulating children will continue to serve you as you head into your virtual classrooms this fall.
  • Equity and Excellence in Remote Learning Remote schooling is especially challenging for the youngest learners and their families.
