The Angle, November 2019 – Child360’s Good Neighbor Week

Dear Neighbor,

The lessons of Mister Rogers are near and dear to all of us, teaching us kindness, acceptance, helping behavior, gratitude, and trust – core values shared by Child360 and attributes we see in your work each and every day.

With that, we’re excited to announce Child360’s Good Neighbor Week! Each day we will honor different lessons of Mister Rogers that are more relevant today than ever. You’re invited to take part!


When:

November 18 – 22


How do I participate?

Spread the spirit of Mister Rogers with us! Leading up to, and during this week, follow Child360 on Facebook for classroom ideas, inspiring videos, and articles. Be sure to take photos and share with us on social media using the hashtag #GoodNeighborWeek The best part? You could win tickets to Child360’s private screening of the film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, at Sony Pictures, on Friday, November 22!


What to expect:

Each day of the week will honor a different Mister Rogers life lesson. We’ve provided a snapshot of the week, in case you want to get a jump start on how you will incorporate these themes into your program during Good Neighbor Week.

Monday: It Starts with Teachers – Celebrate Early Learning Educators
Tuesday: Radical Kindness – Creating the Neighborhood We Want to Live In
Wednesday: Expression – Feelings Should be Shared
Thursday: Appreciating Others – It Takes Good Neighbors to Raise our Children
Friday: I Like You Just the Way You Are! – Self-acceptance & Self-regulation


Why:

The lessons of Mister Rogers are characteristics our world needs now, more than ever. YOU are the Mister Rogers of today, helping young children navigate big feelings, learn about themselves, and love others in the process.


“It only takes one person to inspire a world of kindness.”

– Mister Rogers

Thank you for all you do! We look forward to celebrating this week with you,

Good Neighbor Week culminates with the premiere of the film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, the Mister Rogers biopic starring Tom Hanks, releasing Friday, November 22. Remember to engage with us on social for your chance to win!
