Remote Learning – Resources for Families

Your Guide to Comfort

As if parenting wasn't challenging enough, you've earned a new role in guiding your child through remote learning. Now that your child is spending their time at home instead of in school, your Head Start Team is here to assist you with online learning.  

When it comes to using educational technology and programs, we're here to provide you with training and support. We have compiled the best and most efficient video tutorials that will walk you through the education apps your child is using. Our Head Start Team will make sure you do not feel burdened or intimidated with remote learning and we are here to support you every step of the way.

Welcome Video

Please take a moment to watch this very important Remote Learner Video from our team. We know this is not an easy time for parents so please know we are here for you, every step of the way. We're all in this TOGETHER!
