Share
Description:

The negative impacts of COVID 19 on children’s holistic development have been reported by researchers around the world. This qualitative study explored teachers’ and parents’ perspectives on the impact of physical/social distancing and school closure policies on children’s socioemotional development. The study was conducted in fall 2020. The sample included four U.S. Preschools teachers (for 4-year-olds), four international preschool teachers (for 4, 5-year-olds), three U.S. Kindergarten teaches (for 5-year-olds), and 4 U.S. parents of 4 and 5-year-olds. Interviews were conducted over Zoom. Participants shared that the social deprivation experienced by children such as lack of friendships, absence of peer learning and peer communication, loss of play time, and lack of socialization impacted their children’s socialization skills, higher order thinking development, mental health, and activity levels.
