 Making the Road by Walking 
Sesame Street in Communities Resilience Resources

Everyday life is full of challenges big and small. When children have the tools to overcome obstacles, they can learn and grow.

With the help of our friends on Sesame Street, the Iowa Alliance for Healthy Kids and Iowa ACEs 360 are excited to share a free resource that can help foster families’ resilience and nurture children’s physical and mental health in fun and furry ways.

At this training, you'll have a chance to: 

1. Define the building blocks for resilience.

2. Explore free Sesame Street in Communities printable and digital resources that providers, families, and children can use.

3. Create a plan for how to make these resources meaningful for the families and children in your care.

A certificate of completion can be provided upon request after this training. 

This training is offered in partnership with the Iowa Alliance for Healthy Kids, a group that is working to improve the social and emotional well-being of young children in Iowa. The Alliance has teamed up with Sesame Street in Communities to give parents, caregivers, providers, and leaders messages and tools to promote nurturing relationships within families and to build social-emotional skills with kids.
