Preparing your child for their return to nursery – and a new normal

Sep 02 2020

Being a parent is great fun but also full of challenges and anxieties.  The rise of social media and easy access to everyone’s opinion cannot help as it’s difficult to extract fact from opinion.  Never was this more alive than during the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.  It was compounded by the Government guidance continually changing as they discovered new information.

We have about two million families in England with children aged under five, and nearly 87% of them use some form of formal childcare. What did they say about their lockdown.  It is a mixed picture.  Some families loved the experience of lockdown and had a ball, others didn’t do so well.  For some parents’ lockdown started fine but, as the weeks ran into months, pressure soon mounted and they began to burnout.  Parents working from home with small children found it very stressful and said they were exhausted and used the “screen” as a babysitter more than normally to try and get some work done. There were tussles as to the parent roster? Who did more of the childcare? Whose job could be done at night? Whose Zoom call was more pressing?  Double demands if you were a single parent.
