We are bringing Mister Rogers to YOUR Neighborhood!

With so many children and families out of their typical routines, adults may be wondering about the best ways to help children feel safe and continue to learn and grow. In 1983, in his first book for parents - "Mister Rogers Talks with Parents" - Fred Rogers described six basic necessities of learning. 
Today, the list serves as a reminder of what is deep and simple about what children - and their helpers - need. 
Join our Past School Readiness Symposium Keynote Presenters
Dr. Junlei Li and Dr. Dana Winters for a discussion on Fred Rogers' ideas and what they might mean for our work and life during COVID-19.
 When: May 15, 2020 10:30 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Topic: Learning and Growing in COVID-19: Helping Children and Trusting Ourselves
