So many parents are feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of staying at home with their children – and for many families their usual support network of family daycares, long day cares or OSHC is no longer available to them. However! Ancora Kids Browns Plains Child Care Centre is trying to bridge the gap, and provide a continuity of care for the children that may be #stayinghome at the moment.
To support them, and the wider community, they have an online program (short LIVE video approx 30 minutes) that they do every day (Mon- Fri). The video is supported with resource packs they gave to families (there are still some left for the local community). There is some singing, a story and an activity all available for families to join in with, from the safety of their homes. Every day the families can tune in to stay connected, receive encouragement, and have some fun learning together – from home! In the midst of so much anxiety, it’s just one way the local community can be supported and encouraged that #weareallinthistogether!
