TORONTO, Sept. 26, 2011 /CNW/ - As kids begin the challenge of a new
school year, so begins the homework challenge. To ease the fear and
frustration, TVO has created the parent's secret weapon: the new TVOParents.com. Launching today, it is a curated space that helps parents feed their
child's mind, body and soul.
Fully integrated with tvokids.com, TVOParents.com shows you how every TVOKids program or game addresses the Ontario
school curriculum and gives you access to essential tools like the
TVOKids Homework Zone. This one-of-a-kind resource aggregates TVO's
extensive inventory of curriculum-linked videos, games and activities
into an easy-to-navigate environment where your kids can practice math,
science and literacy concepts they've learned in school.
All of TVOParents.com's content is organized around three key areas that
are fundamental to kids' success in school and life: School and
Learning; Health and Development; Social and Emotional. Themed pages
are designed to easily pull and display content from across the site
that is related to any one issue or topic.
The all-new TVOParents.com offers an extensive video library, audio podcasts, blogs, feature
articles and more, addressing the many issues that affect your child's
learning: When should your child read?; How can you help your child
cope with change?; What are the big developmental and physical
milestones to watch for?
TVOParents.com's Cheryl Jackson, on-camera host, journalist, blogger and mother of three, has
contributed more than 250 videos. Jackson and the team have also posted
more than 400 articles and 400 blogs, ranging from research on
education and parenting trends to coverage of education-focused events
and initiatives across the province.
TVOParents.com has also developed a series of multilingual resources designed to help
parents become their children's first, best teacher. Easy-to access
videos such as How to Read to your Child; How to Count with Your Child;
How to Explore Science with your Child; and Learn Math through Games
are available in English, French, Cayuga, Farsi, Mandarin, Mohawk,
Spanish, Tamil and Urdu.
