New Videos Illustrate How Parents Can Make the Most of Daily Moments
The Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media at Saint Vincent College and Zero to Three have partnered to create videos that inspire positive early childhood learning experiences through daily routines. Adam Blau, Fred Rogers Center Early Career Fellow, served as concept developer and writer and the Pittsburgh Filmmakers produced the videos.
Based on Zero to Three’s popular publications, The Magic of Everyday Moments, these three new videos highlight how parents can support a child’s healthy development through daily routines and interactions. The videos encourage parents to learn about their babies through “detective work” and to cultivate special time to connect, explore, and talk with children.
“These videos are easy-to-understand, memorable, and entertaining resources that do a wonderful job of illustrating how parents already have the tools to figure out what their children need,” explained Michael Robb, Director of Education and Research for the Fred Rogers Center.
The videos are available for free through the Fred Rogers Center Early Learning Environment™, (Ele), with supporting information available on the ZERO TO THREE website.
The mission of the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media at Saint Vincent College is to advance the fields of early learning and children’s media by acting as a catalyst for communication, collaboration, and creative change. The Center houses the Fred Rogers Archive including materials from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. The national signature programs of the Center are the Early Career Fellows program, the Fred Rogers Center Early Learning Environment™, and the Fred Forward Conference Series.
Zero to Three is a national nonprofit whose mission is to promote the health and development of infants and toddlers.
