Sesame Street In Communities

NET is proud to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of Sesame Street by providing community events and professional development tools for parents, educators, and community members across Nebraska.

Professional Development for Educators

Sesame Street in Communities provides hundreds of tools for parents and educators to use to support the key areas that are critical for children's well-being and success: early learning, health, and socio-emotional well-being. 

Early childhood educators are invited to join NET for in-person workshops on how to effectively implement Sesame Street in Communities resources in their practice or community. These training workshops are a great fit for preschool teachers, daycare providers, health care professionals, or any other community members who serve families of young children.
