Sesame Street in Communities offers Resources, Strategies, and Support for Community Providers
Every day, you make a difference by helping kids and families grow smarter, stronger, and kinder. Organizations like yours unite communities, foster families’ and kids’ resilience, nurture their physical and mental health, and provide critical early learning opportunities. You’re an important part of the “circle of care” that surrounds the families and kids who need it most. We’ve created Sesame Street in Communities to support you in this critical work.
Here, you’ll find hundreds of bilingual multi-media tools to help kids and families enrich and expand their knowledge during the early years of birth through six, a critical window for brain development. Our resources engage kids and adults in everyday moments and daily routines—from teaching early math and literacy concepts, to encouraging families to eat nutritious foods, to serious topics such as divorce and food insecurity.
Sesame Street in Communities builds on our almost 50-year commitment to addressing kids’ developmental, physical, and emotional needs. Our time-tested research model and thorough testing with families and providers ensures that these resources have a measurable impact in the lives of parents and children.
We’ll continually add content that meets the changing needs of the communities you serve. Through ongoing collaboration, training experiences, and local partnerships, this initiative will evolve and help you continue to make a difference. Because we’re all in this together.
Each Child. Every Neighborhood.
