Distance Learning Resources

Welcome to the MNCoE Distance Learning Resources site.

This site was created to support MN Early Childhood Program Administrators and Educators to create child-focused, family-centered distance learning plans while schools are closed for COVID-19. As we move into the 2020-21 school year, additional resources will be added to address returning to school and adjusting to new safety guidelines.

Programs may use these resources to supplement their district's e-learning guidance. These resources are not comprehensive and many other options may be considered to support children and families. For the most up-to-date information, please visit:

Planning Routines, Expectations, Family Engagement and Relationships

In this webinar (26 min), Hope Beissel and Sally Hansen discuss ways to use universal practices to support children and families as we transition into the new school year. The strategies discussed are meant to support classroom-based programs, and can be considered for face-to-learning or distance learning. A resource guide is also available.
