Sesame Street: Caring for Each Other initiative

In response to the unprecedented uncertainty facing young children and families, Sesame Workshop’s Caring for Each Other initiative marks the beginning of a commitment to support families throughout the COVID-19 health crisis with a broad variety of free resources.

These are stressful days for families everywhere, and with 50 years’ experience in early childhood education and in helping children and their caregivers face challenging times, Sesame Workshop is here to help. Each week, as we roll out new content, a Sesame Workshop early childhood development expert will contribute a column here with strategies to help families find ways to breathe, laugh, and play together.


Your friends on Sesame Street are here to support you during the COVID-19 health crisis, as families everywhere are creating a “for now normal.” Children thrive with structure in their lives, and they learn best through play—even in everyday moments. So our site is filled with content you can use all day long to spark playful learning, offer children comfort, and focus a bit on yourself, too. After all, it’s important that we take care of ourselves, so that we can best care for our families.
