Child Care Aware® of America's Partnership with Sesame Workshop

Sesame Workshop

Child Care Aware® of America is pleased to announce the organization has entered into a strategic partnership with Sesame Workshop.

While the partnership will offer additional benefits to our Child Care Resource and Referral community over the coming months, we are currently offering the opportunity to order and distribute their Little Children, Big Challenges resources to providers and families across the country.

These resilience-boosting materials were created to help children develop the skills they need to overcome everyday challenges. From saying goodbye to a parent in the morning, being patient, overcoming bedtime blues, sibling rivalry, and even relocating, the lovable and relatable Sesame Street Muppets™ can show children how to cope with everyday challenges so that they may grow healthy and school ready.

"We want to do everything possible to make sure our resources are accessible to families when and where they need them. That's why a dedicated partner like Child Care Aware® of America is such an important relationship to the Workshop. With their established network through the Child Care Resource and Referral field, our multimedia materials about resilience will reach more than 860,000 families per year, and we can continue to develop and improve our resources using feedback from those families." - Jeanette Betancourt, Senior Vice President, Community and Family Engagement, Sesame Workshop
