Making the Most of Time at Home



It’s hard to believe what a different place we, as a society, were in a week ago. So much has changed in an effort to prevent the Coronavirus from spreading and protecting those most at risk. If you find yourself confused, worried, nervous, or unsure of what next steps should look like, know you are not alone.


Today, many parents discovered how limiting social distancing can be, especially in regards to their children. We have compiled a list of activities that can be done from the comfort of your own home to help children continue to learn and to have fun.
