To maintain the safety of our instructors and students and to preserve in-person core curriculum learning in schools, Kidpower will be temporarily returning to virtual learning for our workshops. Keeping kids in school is of utmost importance to their safety, mental health, and well-being. We are carefully monitoring the surge with incidence and positivity rates and hope to be back teaching in-person when the current surge slows down. We will be moving to virtual programming through the month of February and will reassess.
Kidpower quickly transitioned to virtual workshops to bridge the gap during the COVID-19 crisis. We were pleased to receive very positive feedback from kids and adults about the effectiveness and accessibility of these workshops. Online workshops allowed us to expand our geographic reach and allow families to participate from home rather than travel to participate in training. Because of this unexpected success, we will do a hybrid model of online and in-person workshops in the 2021-2022 school year as public health and school guidelines allow and in a way that works best for individuals, families, schools, agencies, and communities.
We have scheduled two Starting Strong in-person workshops, for 4 to 6-year-olds and their adults, August 7, 2021, and August 28, 2021. These workshops will be conducted outdoors to minimize risk. We hope to be gradually adding more in-person workshops following local and state safety and health recommendations. Please call our office or email us if you would like to be on a waitlist for upcoming in-person workshops.
