In a press release, the organization says that this initiative marks the beginning of its commitment to support families throughout the COVID-19 crisis with the help of diverse content. This includes messages of love and hope as well as learning activities kids can do at home.

“Around the world, young children’s lives are being turned upside down, and parents and caregivers are looking for ways to give their children — and themselves — a sense of stability in this new normal,” says Dr. Rosemarie Truglio, Senior Vice President for Curriculum and Content at Sesame Workshop. “Sesame Street is here to provide the caring adults in children’s lives with the resources they need to help children, and foster their healthy development at home.”
Dr. Jeanette Betancourt, Senior Vice President for U.S. Social Impact at Sesame Workshop, also says, “While we don’t always know what to expect, we know that Sesame Street friends have the power to convey simple strategies and messages to help children and the caring adults in their lives find comfort.
