The global response to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has impacted
each of us—from adults who can't go to work, to children who can't go to
school, to countless professionals in the medical and service industries
who remain on the frontlines providing vital services. However, in this
challenging time, child development has not paused, and supporting
children, families, and care providers of all kinds is as important as
ever.

This guide pulls together information on COVID-19, including what it means
for child development, and shareable resources that can help parents,
caregivers, child care providers, pediatricians, and others who work with
families.

We asked you to share how you or your organization is supporting the
developmental needs of young children and their families in the context of
COVID-19. Here's just one of the many responses we received:

*"I have established and been directing a safe home for rescued trafficked
children in the Philippines for the past 11 years [...] Currently, because
of lockdowns, all of the children and staff live in the safe home compound
24/7. We have a farm of plants and animals to meet the nutritional needs as
well as therapeutic needs. The children work some hours in the different
areas of the farm as a form of therapy and then write down their thoughts
and feelings about the plants and animals. Their writings are processed by
the staff, also in writing. We have a swimming pool, where water therapy is
done. It has chlorine, which is a disinfectant. The exercises and
activities we do on the ground and in the water do not require close
contact but have lots of supportive verbal exchanges even from a distance
of 3 meters. Constant washing of hands has been explained fully and is part
of routine. When the children were asked about the present world crisis,
they uniformly said that they feel protected in their little world and are
excited at each day’s end about what the next day would bring."*
