As a parent, we know you’re navigating all kinds of hurdles created by this pandemic, whether you're anticipating the birth of another baby or trying to make it through a few months of homeschooling young kids. It’s clear that the coronavirus has caused some significant disruptions to children’s education. While we all wait for schools to reopen or to choose our own adventure, let’s take advantage of the following tips and resources to help our kids keep learning and prepare for another school year! 

Keep your kids engaged in learning

After a few months of at-home learning, your children’s (and your!) attention spans may be wearing thin. Find ways to keep summer learning fun and exciting! Or at least a little interesting and less battery-powered.

Stick to a family routine

Our best bet is to try structure kids’ days to make at-home learning easier and help them transition back to school in the fall — or whenever.

Continue to follow the COVID-19 guidelines

Even as states begin to reopen, it’s still important to practice social distancing and keep your home clean.

Children’s education in the time of the coronavirus is a learning process for all of us — teachers, parents, and kids. 


We all look forward to the day when our kids can return to school and get back to their normal routines. In the meantime, let’s do our best to be in this moment, make the most of this time and prepare ourselves for the transition by keeping up with their learning and making the most of our time together at home!
