Funny how we moved from talking about children’s performance in schools to now discussing their well-being at home. This world is constantly changing but we bet none of us thought that it’ll change so much in so little time. It’s not easy, it’s not normal, so please stop being so hard on yourself. It is difficult to take care of family, work, do household chores and keep your little ones occupied, all at the same time. The tempers are going to run short, the work will pile up, there will be crying, and stress levels might shoot up. Being around with the people who are closest to us and knows us better than everyone else is bound to bring the best and on some days, the worst in us. That doesn’t mean that there is something wrong with them or us; with so much pressure and changes from the world, everyone is bound to act out. Even your little ones and let’s accept it, it can get a little bit taxing at times. We need to address that even though there are a million ways to keep them occupied and teach them something new, we also need to understand that we have to tell them what’s going on and how it affects the world as they know it. It sounds like a lot of information to grasp, but their little minds are smarter than we think. Let’s pause, reflect, and try to share our honest emotions with each other more and encourage our children to do the same. It’s not going to be easy, but we promise it’s going to be worth it. You are not alone in this, we are always there with you.
Team Kangaroo Kids
Virtual Preschooling Programme
It seems we will continue to Coexist with COVID for a while now, while your little one can stay away from the pre-school care, but we want to ensure that learning for them should not stop. The objective of the new digitally-enabled learning program is to ensure that children learning continues for the children and secondly they are active not just socially but physically as well. It gives the children an opportunity to interact with their peers and teachers to ensure the bond is maintained.
Your favourite Pre-School will go live on 8th June 2020.
Learn Anytime, Anywhere.

PRAISE YOUR CHILD WHEN THEY ARE
Try praising your child or teenager for something they have done well. They may not show it, but you'll see them doing that good thing again. It will also reassure them that you notice and care.
Talking about COVID-19
Be willing to talk.
They will already have heard something. Silence and secrets do not protect our children. Honestly and openness do. Think about how much they will understand. You know them best.
BE ACTIVE AT HOME DURING THE #COVID-19 OUTBREAK
CREATE A FLEXIBLE BUT CONSISTENT
Children or teenagers can help plan the routine for the day - like making a school timetable. Children will follow this better if they help to make it.
Include exercise in each day - this helps with stress and kids with lots of energy at home.
Catch bad behaviour early and redirect your kid's attention from a bad to a good behaviour. Stop it before it starts! When they start to get restless, you can distract with something interesting or fun: "Come, let's play a game together."
SET ASIDE TIME TO SPEND WITH
It can be for just 20 minutes, or longer - it's up to us. It can be at the same time each day so children or teenagers can look forward to it.
