Parenting Articles 5 ways to help keep children learning during the COVID-19 pandemic

UNICEF Global Chief of Education’s tips to help keep your child learning at home.

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has upended family life around the world. School closures, working remotely, physical distancing — it’s a lot to navigate for parents to navigate. Robert Jenkins, UNICEF’s Global Chief of Education, offers five tips to help keep children’s education on track while they’re staying home.

1. Plan a routine together

Try to establish a routine that factors in age-appropriate education programmes that can be followed online, on the television or through the radio. Also, factor in play time and time for reading. Use everyday activities as learning opportunities for your children. And don’t forget to come up with these plans together where possible.
Although establishing a routine and structure is critically important for children and young people, in these times you may notice your children need some level of flexibility. Switch up your activities. If your child is seeming restless and agitated when you’re trying to follow an online learning programme with them, flip to a more active option. Do not forget that planning and doing house chores together safely is great for development of fine and gross motor functions. Try and stay as attuned to their needs as possible.

2. Have open conversations

Encourage your children to ask questions and express their feelings with you. Remember that your child may have different reactions to stress, so be patient and understanding. Start by inviting your child to talk about the issue. Find out how much they already know and follow their lead. Discuss good hygiene practices. You can use everyday moments to reinforce the importance of things like regular and thorough hand-washing. Make sure you are in a safe environment and allow your child to talk freely. Drawing, stories and other activities may help to open a discussion.
Try not to minimize or avoid their concerns. Be sure to acknowledge their feelings and assure them that it’s natural to feel scared about these things. Demonstrate that you’re listening by giving them your full attention, and make sure they understand that they can talk to you and their teachers whenever they like. Warn them about fake news and encourage them – and remind yourselves – to use trusted sources of information such as UNICEF guidance.

3. Take your time

Start with shorter learning sessions and make them progressively longer. If the goal is to have a 30- or 45-minute session, start with 10 minutes and build up from there.  Within a session, combine online or screen time with offline activities or exercises.

4. Protect children online

Digital platforms provide an opportunity for children to keep learning, take part in play and keep in touch with their friends. But increased access online brings heightened risks for children’s safety, protection and privacy. Discuss the internet with your children so that they know how it works, what they need to be aware of, and what appropriate behavior looks like on the platforms they use, such as video calls.
Establish rules together about how, when and where the internet can be used. Set up parental controls on their devices to mitigate online risks, particularly for younger children. Identify appropriate online tools for recreation together - organizations like Common Sense Media offer advice for age-appropriate apps, games and other online entertainment. In case of cyberbullying or an incident of inappropriate content online, be familiar with school and other local reporting mechanisms, keeping numbers of support helplines and hotlines handy.
Don’t forget that there’s no need for children or young people to share pictures of themselves or other personal information to access digital learning.

5. Stay in touch with your children’s education facility

Find out how to stay in touch with your children’s teacher or school to stay informed, ask questions and get more guidance.  Parent groups or community groups can also be a good way to support each other with your home schooling.

Parent Testimonials

Daw Kay Khaing Aye

I enrolled my eldest daughter in L.C.I.S International Preschool first. I was very satisfied with my daughter’s English language skill. She got the good foundation in her English language skill in L.C.I.S. My daughter became very curious and she wanted to try everything by herself. That is what she got from L.C.I.S. She gained self-confidence to say what is right or wrong. And, I don’t need to worry about how my daughter is learning at school because the teacher can guide her very well. That’s why I always feel thankful to all the teachers from L.C.I.S. I enrolled my youngest daughter in L.C.I.S again because I was very satisfied with L.C.I.S. As a parent, one of the satisfying services of L.C.I.S is that I can discuss my concerns with the teachers openly and constructively. I can see my children’s improvements because the parents and teachers are working cooperatively. I don’t need to worry for my younger daughter as well because she got the same results like her older sister. I’m really thankful to L.C.I.S school.

I want to support my son’s education in the best way. I choose L.C.I.S school because I believe that L.C.I.S can give the best education for my children. I have two sons who are attending in Grade 1 and KG classes. It is very important to have strong foundation in Early Childhood Education. When I see my son’s improvement, I realized that I made a right decision for choosing L.C.I.S school. I am sure that I would not regret to give best education for my children.
