Like so many of us right now, families are finding themselves home with kids all day, looking for ways to teach and entertain.  This can feel challenging, and we want to offer a little help, support, and overall solidarity to all of our families.  The majority of the staff of Irondequoit Pediatrics are parents to kids of all ages, ranging from babies to adults, so we can understand how overwhelming this may feel.


We want to share a list of online resources that you can use to teach, distract, and occupy not only your little kids, but the big kids as well.  We hope you find this helpful.  We would love to hear about what you are doing to pass the time with your kids!  Stay in and stay healthy!
