Sesame Street in Communities

Supporting the people who make a difference in children’s lives.

Sesame Street in Communities, an initiative from nonprofit media and educational organization Sesame Workshop, is a resource collection to help kids and families during the early years of birth through six, a critical window for brain development.

The materials provide strategies and support for everyday moments and serious topics: everything from school readiness to building healthy habits to tough issues such as divorce and hunger. The collection includes hundreds of multi-media tools in both English and Spanish. The videos, activities, printables, and digital interactives feature friendly, furry Muppets and help caregivers playfully, meaningfully engage with kids during everyday moments. The site covers a wide range of topics, from school readiness to building healthy habits to tough issues such as divorce and hunger.

Sesame Street in Communities builds on Sesame Workshop’s 50-year commitment to addressing kids’ developmental, physical, and emotional needs. Our time-tested research model and thorough testing with families and providers ensures that these resources have a measurable impact in the lives of parents and children.
