We understand that an unplanned extended break can be stressful but it is important to remember that routine is important for kids, especially during uncertain times.
How to Talk to Your Kids About Coronavirus
Why is routine so important? Routines provide toddlers and young children with a sense of security and stability. They gain an understanding of everyday procedures and what is expected of them. And once the COVID-19 outbreak has concluded, children will be expected to pick up where they left off and be thrown back into normal life and formal learning. By keeping routine at home while daycares and schools are closed, you can make this transition easier and your children can continue learning to read, engage in problem-solving skills, and gain knowledge with your parental interim guidance.
