In response to COVID-19 state guidelines, Families Forward Learning Center temporarily closed in mid-March.
We are proud to share that as we begin our Early Head Start classes via distance learning and prepare for onsite Preschool, our teachers are ready—now more than ever—to continue meeting the needs and demands of our learning community in this unprecedented time.
Our most impactful services are being delivered via telephone, video and messaging applications. Using platforms like Learning Genie, Facebook and Instagram we are helping children and parents engage in early childhood learning activities together as well as sharing vital resources and information to aid struggling families.
Our teachers are maintaining daily contact with their students and families, and our Parent Engagement Specialist is reaching out weekly to assess families’ needs and help them connect with resources. Responding to needs voiced by our families during these calls, we have provided links to urgent city and county services, distributed grocery cards, and furnished families with more than 30,000 diapers.
We are living in exceptional times and things are changing daily. Over the coming months we encourage you to stay healthy and care for your families as we do the same for our families.
