The world seems to be a little bit more bleak these days. With the spread of COVID-19, and the near mandatory quarantine of the country, it can be difficult to see the upside in all of this. As a working mom of four, it’s become a difficult task to manage work, homeschooling, and daily life at the moment. I empathize with you all. However, let us use this time not as a way to see the negative in the world, but as a time to grow our relationships with our families.
There are a plethora of resources, communities and organizations have come together to offer completely free virtual opportunities for kids and families to learn, see something new, and participate in activities they would have otherwise. Even though we have not opened our doors, we want you all to know that we are here for you and with you, to create opportunities/ideas for play. Do not fret about what you will teach your child. Instead, allow your child to teach you something and allow them time for unstructured play.

Remember, wash thoroughly, practice social distancing, and avoid panicking.
