Prior to the reopening of preschools, all teachers, principals, and support staff are to undergo a one-time Covid19 swab test as early childhood educators come into close contact with young children. While many parents are concerned about keeping their children in preschools safe, we also wanted to ensure the well-being of our staff.
At Mulberry Learning, we believe that our educators play an important role in a child’s learning and development. Over the past week, we’ve checked in with some of our child care staff to find out how they are coping!
During the circuitbreaker, many of our teachers were working really hard to support parents in home-based learning. While work load increased, our educators welcomed the change as they got to further equip themselves with the different technological devices and platforms.
As they hear about preschools reopening next week, they were excited to go back to school as they also miss the little ones!
How Our Preschool Staff Felt About Going Through The Swab Test?
While many were anxious and nervous about the swab-testing, majority of them were optimistic:
While At The Test Centres…
Amidst the slight inconvenience (the entire process took about 8 hours for some of them) and their discomfort, what kept them going were that they knew they were doing something to safeguard the well-being of children and to assure parents that the environment is safe.
All in all
Through difficult times, it is the company around us that matters. As the swab test concludes today, we’d like to take some time to appreciate our early childhood educators and staff.
Finally, to everyone else,
Special thanks to the staff at Mulberry Learning’s preschools at Cairnhill, Choa Chu Kang, and Toa Payoh for sharing their thoughts and feelings about the current Covid-19 situation and their swab-testing experiences.
