You’re Invited to A Special Virtual Event: Make the Most of Learning at Home with PBS KIDS
With children across the country learning at home, parents and caregivers are facing new challenges. PBS KIDS invites parents and caregivers of children ages 5 to 8 to come together for a discussion with educators, a child psychologist, and parents.
During this one hour virtual event, you will get ideas on how to use PBS KIDS resources to encourage everyday playful learning. We’ll also answer questions and share tips on how you can maintain a strong connection with your child’s school, help your child stay motivated to learn, and develop a learning routine for your family.
