Pre-K and K Resources for At Home Learning
We know this is a difficult time for all of our families. Here are some resources that are designed to help your child review and practice skills, while schools are closed. These are only resources and are not designed to instruct students. In addition, you can find resources to help you and your child cope with the added fear and stress brought on by the outbreak of the Corona virus. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find additional resources on the Judy Center Facebook page @ SomersetCountyJudyCenterPartnership
