For some parents, the Movement Control Order (MCO) or Circuit Breaker (in Singapore) may be a golden opportunity for them to strengthen the bond with their children – to see more of them, share meals, read, play and cook. Children may be sleeping and eating more, and have more relaxed schedules since there is no commuting to schools, and the childcare and enrichment classes have been cancelled.
The role of the teacher has shifted to the parents at home. Without a formal early childhood education background, some parents apply the wrong pedagogy. This is a time of tremendous change for preschools and families. Yet, as Covid-19 grips our nation, teachers are forced to become tech-savvy and parents have to adapt to help with their child’s new online-classroom in the “new normal”.
The value of quality early childhood education in establishing a strong foundation for lifelong learning and reaping social and economic benefits is well supported by a wealth of multidisciplinary research. These long-term benefits have prompted many countries throughout the world to prioritize early childhood development on their national agenda, putting in focused efforts in their pursuit of quality early childhood care and education in recent years. Since the turn of the twenty-first century, the Singapore government has invested substantial resources in formulating and executing policies and strategies to raise the quality of preschool education in several high-leverage areas. In fact, an additional 40,000 pre-school places will be created in the next five years, particularly for children up to four years old, as announced by Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in his National Day Rally speech.
