In mid-March, as the emerging COVID-19 crisis impacted Australians, preschool teacher Hannah Goldspink observed fewer and fewer students turning up. Although the Federal government was instructing children to still go to school, parents were concerned and deciding to withdraw their young pupils.
Hannah felt the uncertainty of those little students still attending. Those, whose parents were deemed “essential workers”, who essentially had nowhere else to go during the days. She wanted them to know that although quieter than usual, preschool was still a safe place for them
Hannah penned her lovely story dedicated to the children of Australia’s essential workforce, to help them to understand big changes happening in their little lives.
