SC Kid Friendly Resources

April 1, 2020

Many of your children might have been hearing about COVID-19 from peers, family, news, friends etc., it can be difficult to know how to approach the conversation. Children might not know how they are feeling or how to appropriately express their feelings about the situation. Sandown Central wants you to know that we are here for you during this difficult time. We have added some resources on a number of topics below. If you are struggling with a different situation at home please reach out at shawna.berni@timberlane.net for more specific resources.
