“I was new to the community and the program helped me meet other moms. I love all the tips on how to read with my kids.”
Parent, Kings Park Elementary School
This workshop uses the overarching theme of names and identity to talk about the ways that we are similar to and different than our friends around us.
Using the award-winning show Super Why, this workshop introduces participants to skills such as letter recognition and word families — the balanced literacy approach shown to help young children learn to read.
Using lively shows like Sesame Street as a model, this workshop shows fun ways to integrate more music and rhythm into daily life and education.
This training helps adults begin the process of teaching children to navigate their “big feelings” and maybe gain a few tips along the way.
Using Sesame Street’s Healthy Habits for Life or Daniel Tiger episodes as a guide, adults can more easily promote healthy eating and exercise.
This workshop uses the wonder and excitement of Curious George or Peg + Cat to show that math skills can be taught — and learned — with fun and enthusiasm.
Using the shows Sid the Science Kid or Ready, Jet Go!, this workshop teaches how to begin a conversation about hearing and the five senses with preschoolers.
