The study sought to gain a consensus among experts on the impact of COVID-19, and to identify strategies and support pre-school children.

Based on the opinions of more than 400 experts and practitioners, this study points to ways that will help to identify, address, or mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on children under age 5.

Research participants believe there is value in:

  • supporting early education and childcare settings to create supportive play environments
  • creating calm environments which provide children with a sense of belonging
  • supporting their well-being to ensure that they are able to progress in their learning and development

In terms of more strategic methods, the key message is that early education and childcare provision should be of a high quality, with universal access, which sits alongside quality parents and carers support and resources.
