 Supporting your children at home

  • Maintaining a routine and schedule is incredibly important for children (and is very useful for parents as well). This is a suggested schedule that you could use that shows the importance of balancing academic learning, physical exercise, time outside as well as downtime and time as a family. Remember, this may be something that carries on for a long time so keeping things as normal as possible will be crucial.
  • To help make your children feel more comfortable in this unusual situation you should ensure you keep them informed about what is going on. Obviously they do not need all the details that we have as adults, but this website provides 7 practical steps for helping your children feel safe not scared. This visual guide can also be used.
  • Some children are going to find this situation stressful and may become anxious. This website talks about how to help children cope with emergencies.
  •  It will be important for parents to maintain their own mental strength and well-being whilst caring for children full-time and possibly self-isolating. Ideas and suggestions can be found here.
  • Spending time in green space or bringing nature into your everyday life can benefit both your mental and physical wellbeing. It can improve your mood, reduce feelings of stress or anger, and make you feel more relaxed.

It’s possible to still get these positive effects from nature while staying indoors at home. You could try the following:

Spend time with the windows open to let in fresh air.

Have flowers or potted plants in your home.

Use natural materials to decorate your living space, or use them in art projects. This could include leaves, flowers, feathers, tree bark or seeds.

Arrange a comfortable space to sit, for example by a window where you can look out over a view of trees or the sky, or watch birds and other animals.

Grow plants or flowers on windowsills. For example, you could buy seeds online or look for any community groups that give away or swap them.

Look at photos of your favourite places in nature. Use them as the background on your mobile phone or computer screen, or print and put them up on your walls.

Listen to natural sounds, like recordings or apps that play birdsong, ocean waves or rainfall. Get as much natural light as you can. Spend time in your garden if you have one, or open your front or back door and sit on the doorstep.

  • The school nursing team is available for telephone consultations if needed:
