Returning to school with social distancing

Martine Demers and Catherine Korah

Before coming back to school, it's important to find out what will be the SAME and what will be DIFFERENT. Due to the pandemic of COVID-19 we ALL need to do Social Distancing. We’ll explain what that means and what it will look like AT SCHOOL. Some of these changes will be fairly easy, others will take some practice, we’re going to work on this together!

Martine Demers and Catherine Korah

The pandemic of COVID-19 has stirred up HUGE waves of emotions. We are seeing all kinds of behaviours in our children, but we’re also feeling so many as adults. We’ll look at different areas of play and discovery that can invite and prime emotional expression with children. Please know that they are equally beneficial for adults. If we have a good level of playfulness….it will help to solicit this in our children.
