LDOE Expands At-Home Care and Learning for Families
The Louisiana Department of Education has expanded its at-home care and learning supports for families who are home with young children as a result of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak.
The new supports include:
- Guidance for Early Learning at Home. This walks families through the process of creating a productive daily schedule, including tips and sample schedules, along with age-appropriate, play-based learning activities to enhance that schedule. It also includes lists of academic resources for all students, including students with disabilities and English learners.
- Noggin Cares. The Department has partnered with Noggin, Nickelodeon's learning service for children ages two and above, to offer a free, three-month subscription to families. The app is loaded with read-aloud e-books, learning games, songs, and other engaging content. It also provides ideas for off-screen family activities, and it provides special content to help young children cope during this time.
"During this extraordinary time, Louisiana must support the hearts and minds of our youngest learners," says Assistant Superintendent Jessica Baghian. "Today, the Department is thrilled to further expand families' access to books, games, and play-based activities."
