The onset of COVID-19 has turned life upside down for many families with young children, as they balance working remotely with caring for and trying to provide educational experiences for their young children.
Promise Venture Studio has put together a curated space for COVID-19 resources, tools, and guidance for parents and caregivers of young children. The site is organized into three areas:
General guidance on working with young children at home, including: information on how to manage schedules and routines; resources on child development and learning; self-care resources for families; and critical support for guiding children’s behaviors, including links to a blog and YouTube series on parenting strategies for this unique time.
A library of up-to-date resources from early childhood experts, news outlets, and parent support organizations.
A searchable database of companies and organizations providing resources, materials, supports, ideas, and inspiration for parents, caregivers and those supporting young children during this time.
Most of the resources on the site are geared towards parents, and would be helpful to share with any families who are looking for resources or information. Caregivers and ECE professionals might enjoy the following articles:
