COVID-19

FAMILY RESOURCES

This has been and continues to be a challenging time for families adjusting to a new normal. We’ve created some resource lists to help families with ideas on entertaining children and adults while inside with both fun and educational activities!

We’ve also included some resources on talking to children about COVID-19. Knowing that kids hear information from a variety of sources, it can be helpful in easing anxiety to talk through what they know and what questions they may have.

 

For specific questions or resource help, reach out to our Children’s Services Coordinator at 617 770 4065 x 320.
