Talking to Your Child About COVID-19
Recent events have changed our daily routines entirely, and activities as simple as going to the grocery store or going to school are completely different than they were just a few months ago.
Many children, like adults, are experiencing a lot of stress and uncertainty right now. This uncertainty leads to lots of questions: Why do we need masks? Why can't I play with my friends? When can I go to the store?
Our work with Conscious Discipline has taught us that children need to feel safe, connected and loved. Explanations that are simple, clear and age appropriate create a sense of safety for children.
We have collected some simple ideas and videos that will help you child understand that masks are just a tool to keep us safe. We hope these resources will be helpful for your family.
Story Time with Our Teachers

"Why can't I go to school?"

Assessing new situations, researching options and adapting our practices is inherent in our commitment to providing exceptional quality programs.
Our COVID-19 Healthy & Safety Precautions are just one example of how we keep that commitment.
