How are you?
Each setting, staff member, family and child will be experiencing extraordinary change, and all the emotions that come with it. Educators are on the front line, providing safe spaces for vulnerable children and the children of key workers, as well as supporting parents and carers who now have children at home. You will also be coping with the change in your own lives and those of your loved ones.
We have heard so many stories of generosity and community over the last week. From neighbours who open their doors at 6pm each day to wave and say hello to each other, to young children sharing books together on a ‘virtual play-date’. Today, 1.4 million people, including children who are now home-learning, joined in simultaneously for a live workout with ‘PE with Joe’.
These stories remind us of how we need and value coming together – we find ways of joining and sharing even when we are told we must be apart.
If you have a question or would like a chat, you will receive empathy and experience from FSF users. You can post a new question or join in with a current conversation.
If you use Tapestry at your setting, please go to the Coronavirus Info page for help and advice on how you can use Tapestry as a tool to stay connected with your children and families and support their home learning.
Stay safe and take care of yourselves, your loved ones, and your communities.
