EDUCATORS’ NEIGHBORHOOD

Educators’ Neighborhood is a place for educators to learn from and with each other inspired by the life and work of Fred Rogers. We study episodes of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, read from the Fred Rogers Center archive, and generate new ideas together connected to our daily practice with young children. 

 

We define “educator” broadly to include all helpers who work in the service of children’s learning and care–formal and informal educators, care providers, therapists, librarians, museum docents, tutors, coaches, parents, grandparents, and neighbors.

COMMUNITY SHARING EVENTS

Educators’ Neighborhood will host a series of sharing sessions during the 2020-21 school year. Each session will focus on a different topic. We’ll watch episode clips from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and hear from educators who are part of our Educators’ Neighborhood learning community. All sessions are free and open to the public. They will be held via zoom webinar, 6:00-7:30pm Eastern Time. Registration for each session is required.
