The nation has virtually shut down to help alleviate the spread of the coronavirus. While shutting down schools, churches, and other public gathering places is a necessary measure, the move hasn’t been easy on many parents who are now having to work from home while also struggling to keep their kids educated and occupied. Luckily, the Children’s Museum of Houston is here to help. The museum has announced a Daily Virtual Learning schedule full of educational and entertaining content designed to help families during this time of need.
The museum is closed until at least April as local, state, and federal health officials monitor the developing coronavirus outbreak. To maintain their award-winning level of community engagement, the Children’s Museum of Houston posted their Daily Virtual Learning Broadcast Schedule to their social media platforms this week, writing that “Our educators and staff are bringing the Museum to you and extending learning at home with activities, experiments, stories, music, performances and more!”
The daily schedule is as follows:
- 10:15 am: Mr. O on Facebook
- 11:15 am: English storytime on Instagram
- 12:15 pm: Educator moment on Facebook
- 1:15 pm: Bilingual storytime on Instagram
- 3:15 pm: Toddler Time on YouTube
Already comments on the museum’s Facebook page have been overwhelmingly positive. Kids need a sense of normalcy during these stressful times, and all of the changes going on around them can be difficult. By establishing a new daily routine with the museum’s Daily Virtual Learning schedule, you can help your kids through this strange and frightening period.
