The ambiguous presence of children’s mental health in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic in early childhood curriculum
In the context of the continuing pandemic, it has become apparent that the new global circumstances put a strain on the holistic well-being of children and their families. The experience of social distancing, prolonged lockdowns, long periods of separation from extended family, as well as extra stress associated with the anticipated economic crisis, have negatively affected all aspects of families’ well-being, particularly mental health. This position statement seeks to increase attention to children’s mental health and calls for further discussion on mental health to be included in the current early childhood curriculum.
